The second part of this workshop provides information on how to sell a book-length memoir to traditional publishers.

By the end of the workshop, participants will understand how to plan out and write a memoir, and how to submit the manuscript for publication. We'll talk about how to work with your editor in shaping the final draft. Briefly, we'll discuss the decision to self-publish and strategies for success. A bibliography will offer participants a wealth of online and print resources on writing and selling book-length memoir.
