Writing Memoirs that People WANT to Read!
Writing Tips and Techniques to Bring Your Story to Life

IWOSC kicks off the New Year with a memoir-writing workshop intensive led by our own Ina Hillebrandt. Using her special provocative techniques in this hands-on writing seminar, you’ll be writing a short tale to immediately get the hang of this new style!

You’ll experience for yourself how fun and cathartic it can be to write stories from your own life.

You’ll get creative practical feedback and writing tips to write memoirs that people will want to read — even those who are not your mother or child.

You’ll see why internationally celebrated storyteller and new author Michael D. McCarty wrote about Ina’s workshops, “My inner critic disappeared. He’s somewhere in the Bahamas.”

Presented by: Ina Hillebrandt
