Workshop: How to Write a Memoir in Less Than Twelve Years
With Jan Redford, author of End of the Rope: Mountains, Marriage & Motherhood, Random House, April 3, 2018
As an author who spent approximately twelve years to write her memoir of love and loss in the mountains, Jan Redford is full of ideas of what NOT to do next time. She will share the biggest brick walls she encountered, and how she scaled them to land a book deal with Random House Canada. Come prepared to share your own brick walls so we can pool our collective wisdom and brainstorm our way to solutions with the liberal use of Crayola markers, stickies, huge rolls of paper, and laughter.
