Pen a Captivating Memoir with Expert Guidance

Prepare yourself for the most comprehensive Memoir writing experience you could wish for.

Recommended Skill Level: Beginner to Advanced

From foundational practices to specific, scene-based methods, you’ll explore the core techniques behind transforming your scattered memories into a compelling narrative.

Uncover the science and psychology of memoir, carve a compelling narrative, highlight conflict, find your voice, and ratchet up tension as you immerse yourself in every essential element of writing a successful memoir that resonates with readers.

Whether you're a veteran writer looking to refine your craft or a newcomer to the world of memoirs, Memories to Masterpiece's live interactive sessions and wealth of assignments will give you the tools and techniques to tell your story with maximum impact.

These same techniques are applicable whether you'll be writing your own memoirs, or intend to ghostwrite for others.

Memories to masterpieces

Explore the Full Curriculum


In this foundation-setting introductory module, we’ll :

  • Explore how to form a clear narrative structure out of a series of events that might seem unrelated.
  • Look at the relationship between memory and truth, and how these factor into the creation of a fascinating memoir.
  • How to carve out a hero’s journey for yourself without needing to completely fabricate major parts of your life.

  • Explore what makes a compelling scene, versus a flat one that will leave audiences cold.
  • How to build tension in the audience with pacing techniques and framing moments in your story in the most effective manner.


  • What constitutes a deep point of view, and why is it instrumental in crafting living, breathing narratives that let readers truly feel like they’re living another life?
  • Uncover the secrets employed by bestselling authors to shorten or eliminate narrative distance by writing as yourself instead of about yourself.

  • How to translate the way we naturally interpret the world onto the page, so readers feel like they’re truly part of your life.
  • The correct way to build mood and atmosphere – and the lazy mistakes most aspiring authors make that leaves their work drenched in cliché.
  • What it means to “show don’t tell,” and how that advice can be good and bad when it comes to writing your memoir.
