When It Already Happened: Plotting Your Memoir

A Talk by Linda Lowen (Founder, Always Wanted To Write)

About this Talk

Plot and structure isn't exclusive to fiction. Memoirs that become bestsellers do so because readers often say, "It reads like a novel!" Unlike fiction, you can't just make up events, but you can be selective when writing from personal experience and employ devices like framing, flashbacks, and callbacks to enhance your storytelling. We'll look at how to plot your memoir to create a compelling, irresistible tale.
