Writing & Selling your Memoir
There's more to writing a memoir than just writing your life story. A memoir isn't one long diary entry. Rather, it's a well-crafted story about a crucial, often exceptionally difficult, time in someone's life. This book talks readers through the process of telling their most personal stories in a compelling, relatable, and readable manner. Unlike other books dedicated to the art and craft of writing memoir, it teaches readers how to approach the genre with love, respect, and know-how without sentimentalizing it. Drawing on her experience working with New York Times best-selling memoirists, literary agent Paula Balzer carefully explores the genre and provides readers with step-by-step instruction on how to:
  • Identify strong opening and closing points 
  • Find and develop a strong central hook that readers can relate to
  • Structure a memoir to maximize readability
  • Use dialogue and pacing to enhance intimacy
  • Approach honesty and truthfulness
  • Build a successful author platform around their memoir 
  • Get an agent's attention
