Writing and Publishing Your Memoir

A Six-Week Course: I've been approved to teach a course on memoir writing and publishing on consecutive Wednesdays, beginning May 16, 1 to 3 PM, at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 E. Colorado Ave., Colorado Springs. The course is being advertised to seniors, but I doubt if they'll be checking IDs at the door. Still, if you're under 55, you might email me first.

My minimum objective is to get students to plan their memoir, complete with working title and subtitle, table of contents, and a vision of what the finished book will look like, how long it will be, who the readers will be and how they will reach them. In addition, with six sessions, some students ought to be able to road test a chapter or two or three.

Fee is $110.00 for members of Cottonwood and $135.00 for non-members.

I've been looking for a way to help would-be authors, especially seniors, to get their memoirs written and published a suitable form.--The Publishing Pro.
