Marcia Meier’s Memoir Boot Camp to Help Aspiring Writers Focus on Their Past

Everyone has a unique story to tell. What’s yours?

Where did you come from? What events shaped you as a child? As an adult? What lessons did you learn that you want to share with your loved ones?

With Marcia Meier’s Memoir Boot Camp Supreme! you’ll create a book — a powerful legacy — for your children and grandchildren, friends, perhaps even the world at large!

In just eight weeks, you’ll discover the story threads in your life and weave them together into a compelling book! Here’s what you’ll get:

» A finished first draft of your memoir

» Weekly workshops with Meier that will provide guidance and feedback throughout your writing journey

» Online sharing with other workshop participants

» Individualized attention to your work throughout the session

» Exclusive! A complete workbook with instruction and writing exercises and prompts to keep you writing and help you meet your weekly goals

» A personalized copy of Meier’s acclaimed book, Navigating the Rough Waters of Today’s Publishing World, Critical Advice for Writers From Industry Insiders

» Connection with other writers for ongoing encouragement after Memoir Boot Camp ends

Like National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), this course is predicated upon writing a minimum number of words each day — only 1,200! You can do that in less than an hour each day. But this workshop gives you more! You’ll have personal guidance and encouragement as you write, chapter by chapter, the story of your life in a way that will resonate with your loved ones and strangers, alike. You’ll have a book you’ll be proud to leave as a legacy to your children and grandchildren!

No other memoir course offers everything you’ll get with Marcia Meier’s Memoir Boot Camp Supreme!

The course runs for six Mondays (via live video chat), 7-8:30 p.m. Pacific time. Session I is Aug. 12 to Sept. 30. Session II is Oct. 14 to Dec. 9, with Thanksgiving week off. The cost is $1,500 per session if paid by Aug. 1, or $1,800 per session afterward.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
