Stories are important. They shape readers’ lives. Your memoir can be:
“… a mirror
in which the reader can also see
his or her experience reflected
in a new and potentially transforming way.”
(Frederick Buechner, A Room Called Remember)
Your stories can help readers make good choices.
Your memoir can prevent problems, and help readers solve problems, and even save readers’ lives.
“I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers,” writes Sherman Alexie. “…. I write to give them weapons—in the form of words and ideas—that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed.”
Your children, grandchildren, and great-grands
need to know your stories.
If you’re writing a memoir
or have published one,
let us know.
Writing a memoir
and publishing it
and marketing it
can be a daunting task, and
we want to cheer you on.
