Coaching Through NAMW, you can connect directly with our founder, Linda Joy Myers.  Linda Joy has been coaching and encouraging memoir writers for years, and enjoys helping members see their stories through to fruition and publication.  Her goal is to help you mine the creative process, and find that place where you drop into your true creative self and make a difference in the world. To stay focused and make real progress, you need three things:

1) Support in deciding what your story is about—themes & topics.
2) Feedback to develop your skills—story structure, scenes, dialogue, character development, tone, and voice.
3) Help with navigating writing & editing to publishing and marketing.

Audience members will take with them a feeling of empowerment, knowing they are in control of their own destiny.
