Why We Love It

For a lot of writers, getting started is the hardest part. Oftentimes there's nothing more intimidating than a blank page staring back at you. We love this workbook for its informative hand-holding; it walks you through techniques, writing drills, and the skills required to write in the memoir genre. It's like a mini Masterclass in a book.
