Are you writing a memoir and need a weekly deadline to keep you on track? This six-week online memoir workshop is open to memoirists at all draft stages and of all experience levels. The main goal of the course is simply to generate new memoir material or revamp dull scenes. Each week, students will read model memoir chapters for inspiration, complete weekly writing assignments, and meet for an hour-long online session that includes a craft talk and writing prompt. Each student will also get the opportunity to have one polished memoir excerpt workshopped by the class and instructor. Students will leave the class with six new memoir scenes.

"Nadine is extremely well-organized. She has a good balance of written examples and writing exercises which always relate to the example just read. She adheres to her schedule and gives everyone equal time."

"Nadine is a talented and thoughtful instructor. The focus was on our work, not on hers. I would definitely take a class with her again, and would recommend her to a friend."

"Nadine was great. She was supportive and friendly and knowledgeable on writing techniques and editing."
