FREE | How to Write and Sell Your Memoir Even if You’re Not Famous

May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

How to Write and Sell Your Memoir Even if You’re Not Famous
What legacy do you want to leave behind? Writing a memoir can be one of the most liberating things you’ll ever do.

About this event

Jacqx Melilli, award-winning author, editor and writing mentor has heard so many incredible stories over the years and finds that most people procrastinate about documenting their story. These stories will be lost forever if they are not written down. People don’t realise that their experiences will be valuable for generations to come.

Jacqx has a Master of Arts degree in Writing and Literature from Deakin University and has several publications including stage plays, educational books on filmmaking and theatre production, poetry, short stories and film scripts.

Jacqx is passionate about assisting people to document their memoir after seeing how life-changing it has been for some of her clients. Her free online workshop will cover the following topics:

Topic 1: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

Topic 2: Who will be your audience?

Topic 3: Compiling information/Research versus relying on memories

Topic 4: Interviewing skills

Topic 5: Laying out your chapters

Topic 6: Keeping the content interesting

Topic 7: Getting through the tough stuff

Topic 8: Working with a writing mentor or editor

Topic 9: Publication choices

Topic 10: The final product is a gift to the reader

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a foundation for your story, clear direction, new writing and interviewing skills, and the inspiration to get started on documenting your memoir so you can leave behind a legacy you’ll be proud to share.

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.

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.
