This class is for those writing a book-length memoir or memoir in essays. If you are looking to sell your memoir, you'll need to write a brief elevator pitch. Pitches also come in handy when you're writing a memoir proposal or query letter.

In this class you'll learn how to draft and/or revise your pitch, and even practice delivering it. This is a great class for the terminally shy, or for those struggling to complete a pitch, and to build confidence in presenting your work as a professional.

Writers at all stages of their memoir are welcome!

Class Format

This class will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood.
