Creative Writing: Memoir

Everyone has experiences and insights that are worth retelling. Memoir is the art of taking scenes from our past and presenting them to an audience, not simply for the sake of telling a story but to inform, entertain and establish an emotional bond with our readers. By exploring memories and examining our lives, we also learn a lot about ourselves.
