Memoir Writing
Memoir Writing

Listen
AIR DATE: March 4, 2011

Writing a memoir can be a raw, very personal process. What does it take to crack open your own life and examine your own family tree? Does everyone have a story to tell? And can anyone learn how to write a memoir? We talk to both a memoirist and an instructor who teaches people to write memoirs.

GUEST
Carolyn Uber, writing instructor and Pres, Stephens Press
Oksana Marafioti, author, American Gypsy
