Memoir Mentor Sessions (10 hours)

Memoir Mentor Sessions (10 hours)



If you are thinking about writing your Memoir but you don’t know where to start, we will provide 10 hours, one-on-one,  Mentoring Sessions designed just for you. It is natural to just start writing when inspiration hits but all too often writers hit the 6,000-word mark and then wonder what to do next.

In these Memoir Mentoring Sessions, you will receive 10 hours dedicated to planning your writing project and getting you started on your writing journey. You can book your first 2-hour session online at a time that suits you and we shall then book the remaining sessions in advance.

During this time you will receive:

  • Prepare for Success – a mini checklist/guide through all the stages of Memoir
  • guidance on how long does it take to write a Memoir. Spoiler alert – it doesn’t happen in one weekend.
  • useful resource links and information about the tools of the craft. Let’s make the writing life a little easier.
  • advice on how to identify your ‘real’ story. If you have already decided what your story is about we can review this in the session. We discuss whether this is the ‘best story we can tell.
  • information on the genre. What is it and why is getting it right so important?
  • an opportunity to start writing … introduce yourself to me (in writing). What’s your story?
  • explanation of the differences between Memoir and Autobiography
  • explanation around the ‘goal/purpose’ of Memoir
  • identifying your purpose – why do you want to write your story?
  • coping techniques for any potential blocks/fears around writing your story
  • understanding themes
  • outline of themes in your story
  • the chance to ask any questions you want about the writing process

Upon receipt of payment, you will receive ‘Prepare for Success’ a mini-guide through the whole Memoir writing process.  We will be in touch via email within 24 hours of receipt of payment to arrange your Memoir Mentorship Sessions. When we contact you please advise if you would like a review of one sample chapter of writing. Time can be allocated during the 10-hour session (with an understanding that this will reduce time spent on other areas). Alternatively, a Chapter Review (one chapter only or maximum of 3000 words) can be provided separately for an additional fee of $100.
