...the NAMW memoir classes with Linda Joy Myers are wonderful
Kathy PoolerSeptember 9, 2014
I loved Linda Joy's two-hour workshop on memoir writing! She gave us such terrific information--all of which was helpful no matter what stage of memoir writing we were in. She has such an embracing style--this was not like most teleseminars I have taken, in that Linda Joy encouraged participation of the audience (she did not mute us), and no matter what participants said or asked, she always made everyone feel like their contribution or question was valued.

A powerful and unique writing guide—one that will lead any writer straight to the heart of their richest material, help them heal, and then teach them how to shape it into literature. Destined to become a classic!

One of the best things that has happened to me in my short two year adventure as a writer and author, is the NAMW and you. I can't thank you enough for your inspirational efforts to make sure that all your members get much more than 100 per cent value from belonging to the group.

About Linda’s online writing workshop: I like the concept of ‘turning points’ instead of stories. It gives a more dynamic sense of flow to the stories and helps me to know which ones to select

When I first found NAMW (through Kathleen Adams and the Center for Journal Therapy) I was ecstatic. I knew that I was not alone in the drive to write down what happened to me and those around me, as well as the very real effects of lives lived – effects that reach from the distant past well as far, far into the future. Connecting with others who are putting themselves through the annealing fire of The Journey provides comfort like no other. The value is further enhanced by Linda Joy Myers. Her insightful “hand” leads, directs, and sets the tone for the society.
