Inspiration for the Journey: Beginnings, Endings and the Arc of Story
Jerry Waxler
November 20, 2020
11 AM PST  | 12 PM MST  | 1 PM CST |  2 PM EST

Here at NAMW we are always championing you to write the stories that you treasure, that you need to write, that you want to share. I’ve invited Jerry Waxler back to talk about story—a subject he loves to talk about. Over the years, Jerry has taught structure and the power of story, and since this month celebrates National Lifestory Month, we wanted to inspired you and offer some tips to get your story started, if you haven’t begun yet, and infuse new energy into your writing during a time of the year when we can get distracted by everything else. This year was indeed a year of chaos and coping. We hope you can join us.

We’re going to talk about your journey as a memoir writer:

  • How to begin your story—and how to keep going.
  • Keeping it simple—techniques to help you avoid overwhelm.
  • Drawing from your memories—how to make sense of what to include and what to leave out—the topic is finding your theme.
  • Some of the elements that make a great story.
  • How to support yourself on your journey

Bio
Jerry Waxler writes, speaks, coaches and teaches about how to use life story writing to awaken self understanding, and heal from the tyranny of unresolved memory. Jerry’s blog and book Memoir Revolution celebrates this new modality for individual and collective healing. His own memoir Thinking My Way to the End of the World is about his struggle to come of age during the chaotic sixties, and just as importantly, it’s about the will to find the story amid the confusing rubble of the past.
