Join memoirist Janet Buttenwieser for an informal discussion about the process of writing and publishing memoir. How do we dig into the painful parts of our lives and craft them into memoir? What does it feel like to sit down to Sunday dinner with our loved ones after having written about them all week? And how do we cope with the anxiety that comes from having our personal stories published? We will answer these questions and more of your own about writing and publishing in the most personal of genres. We will look at a published brief memoir and do some writing of our own. Janet will share her stories of publishing personal essays as well as her unique path to publication for her newly published memoir, GUTS.
