The Craft of Memoir: “Wild” as a Guide to Becoming a Better Writer
CD + transcript (four hours of content) — $29.95 + shipping & handling
Linda Joy Myers and Brooke Warner both fell in love with Cheryl Strayed’s Wild when we read it, and we immediately saw its value as a teaching tool for all of the skills the author brings to the memoir. Strayed uses what’s called a framed structure, meaning that she writes the story of her life, but uses her limited time on the Pacific Crest Trail as a means to contain her story.
The Craft of Memoir: Wild as a Guide to Becoming a Better Writer is a four-session CD (transcript included) showcases some of the things Strayed does brilliantly—structure, transitions, flashbacks vs. memory, and reflection—so that you can begin to use these skills in your own writing. In this course we provide specific chapters and scenes to pinpoint the skill sets used by this bestselling author.
