Write Your Memoir in 6 Months is a coaching program tailored to help you write your first draft in six months—60,000 words, 10,000 words per month–and learn the skills and tools that help you structure, write, and publish your memoir. The program is designed and offered by two experienced memoir coaches:

Linda Joy Myers, Ph.D., MFT, the president and founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers, and the author and editor of four books, and

Brooke Warner, the founder of Warner Coaching Inc. author of What’s Your Book?, and the publisher of She Writes Press. She is an equal advocate for traditional and self-publishing.

We understand your challenges in writing a memoir. When you decide to write a memoir, you begin a journey into your memories, desires, and a path to finding and writing the story you want to tell. Getting your story down requires a lot from you, and it gives a lot back. You learn about yourself, and find new perspectives about your life. You offer something to the reader—a new way to understand and make sense of life, and new tools with which to engage life. Writing a memoir is an inner and an outer journey, and this intensive 6 months program is designed just for memoirists.

In this program Write Your Memoir in 6 Months, we provide accountability, we teach the craft of writing a memoir, and we offer support and guidance to get you from idea to words on the page.

  • Accountability—we know what it takes to write a full length book, and will be there with our own expertise and other tools to keep you on track.
  • Writing skills—we will teach you about language, verb tenses, plot, structure, voice, and the expectations publishers have about what makes a publishable memoir.
  • The publishing process—we offer you the tools and information you need to understand how publishing works, whether it’s traditional, hybrid publishing, eBooks, or self-publishing options.
  • Support and guidance—we help you through the stages of memoir writing, and show you how to get to “the end” of your book.
