Interview Highlights of 2010: Memoir Writing Conversation with Jane Friedman

Last September the National Association of Memoir Writers hosted Jane Friedman, contributing editor at Writer’s Digest, and myself as part of a Memoir Writing Roundtable on the topic of Evaluating Your First Page for Red Flags.

Jane is an energetic, knowledgeable, and inspiring speaker. I told you about meeting her at a conference last spring, and how she energized the room as she talked about creativity and publishing. Jane knows so much about how we need to shape and educate ourselves so we can succeed in the professional writing world.

Jane spoke about how to take a long hard look at your writing, especially on the vital first page that agents and editors view.

Enjoy the recording! Your writing life will benefit from Jane’s experience and wisdom.
