Structuring and Outlining Your Memoir

Introductory / Intermediate | Do you have a personal story you need to write but aren’t sure how to tell it? NYT-bestselling memoir author/book coach Ingrid Ricks will delve into story arc and break down the three most commonly used story structures for both book and film. She’ll also teach you the simple book outlining technique she employs for every book project she takes on. Workshop includes exercises to help you nail down a structure for your memoir.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
