Your Story Matters. Be Brave. Persist.
Write Your Memoir in Six Months offers the support, encouragement, and accountability you’re looking for to write the book that’s in your heart. Brooke Warner and Linda Joy Myers are experienced memoir teachers and passionate believers in the magic of memoir. It’s magical to tell your story—to bring to life something that’s lived inside you. It’s so gratifying to offer your personal truth to others.
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.
