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.”

Leading this IWOSC memoir writing intensive, Ina will draw on her expertise in the key areas of bringing your own story to life on the page. Having worked with survivors of trauma, including sexual abuse and the Holocaust, Ina knows exactly how to break the fear-cycle of “triggering” memories and get them down on the page as painlessly as possible. She will share her proven tips and techniques on memory recall, story structure, and telling personal stories in the most lively, page-turning fashion, including her unique ability to help writers inject humor into their work and into the writing process itself.

The author of How To Write Your Memoirs, Fun Prompts to Make Writing…and Reading…Your Life Stories A Pleasure, Pawprints, You Are Who You Eat and other books, Ina is also a veteran of Madison Avenue and has been a featured guest on a variety of TV and radio shows.
