FREE | How to Write a Memoir with Commercial Appeal

July 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Free
How-to-Write-a-Memoir-with-Commercial-Appeal

Author Paul Bradley Carr reveals his top tips for creating a memoir that appeals to a wider audience.

About this event

They say everyone is the hero of their own story – but sometimes that story has the potential to reach, and help, a much wider audience. In this webinar, Paul talks about:

  • What makes for a successful memoir;
  • Telling your story in a commercially appealing way; and
  • What to leave out of your memoir.

Paul will also share his advice on finding a publisher, or when and how to self-publish. He’ll share his experiences writing and publishing successful memoirs, including what he wishes he’d done differently and how publishing has dramatically changed since he wrote his first book almost twenty years ago.

There will be a Q&A where you can ask Paul your questions on memoir and publishing.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
