Your Memoir Matters.

It’s time to write it….

Memoir packages

You have had an incredible experience. You’ve been somewhere or done something you never expected and recognize that your experience has a universal theme. It changed your life, or changed your path; it impacted friends or family. You know that what you have been through matters and you know that sharing it with readers matters, too. 

I offer a range of support packages to take you to your finish line, from phone consults and brainstorming to complete manuscript review and every step in between. The secret to memoir is finding your moment, finding your audience, and speaking universal truths. You can do it.

Let’s work together!

The Great Idea: Let's Talk

You have a great idea, you’ve started, but you’re not sure you’re on the right track. Let’s talk and make a plan!

  • You will complete this extended q&a and upload a sample of your work so far (~20 pages)
  • I will review your answers, read your sample, and come up with constructive, developmental feedback and advice for next steps
  • We will have 1 (one) 60-minute consultation call to organize your ideas and help you plan for success.

The Great Idea: Let's Begin

You have a great idea but need to dig into it a little more before the great story emerges. You may have started writing, or you may be scared to start. Let’s work together to dig into the why of your idea to help you see what you really mean to write.

At the end of this deep-dive, you should expect to have a better sense of who and what you are writing, who your audience is, and how you can best connect with them.

The Chosen Path: The Proposal

Nonfiction books often get pitched with a proposal. Memoirs walk the line between fiction and nonfiction, thus not all memoirs use a proposal. However, being clear, confident, and overprepared can help strengthen your case when looking for an agent. A proposal is a strength that you may find helpful to have on your journey.

This 4-month, Memoir-specific package includes:

  • A deep-dive preliminary q&a to help me get to know you as a writer (if we have not worked on your Great Idea together already)
  • 1 (one) 60-minute introductory call to lay out our plan and weekly or bi-weekly deadlines.
  • Submission of proposal components every 2 weeks for review (or weekly, as agreed upon at the start)
  • Emailed feedback with in-line comments within 7 days of receipt of materials.
  • 2 (two) 30-minute support calls each month to discuss your progress and my feedback
  • 1 (one) 60-minute support call at the end of 4 months to cheer your successes and assess your next steps.
  • Weekly email support, motivation, and accountability checks to keep you going.

The Chosen Path Proposal (Memoir): $1750

Monthly extensions are $450 should the proposal take you back into the manuscript in significant ways that need support.
