About the Class

How do you write a successful, complete story arc about a life you're still living?

In this 30-minute class, award-winning author and writing coach Tammy Letherer shows you how to apply the stages of the Hero's Journey to the events in your life, giving you the tools you need to build a powerful outline for your memoir. 

No matter how compelling your personal story is, it won't hook the reader unless you know how to structure it with a beginning, middle, and end. You must share how you faced a specific challenge and how that challenge transformed you and shaped a new belief. It’s a tall order.

Fortunately, humans are hard-wired to respond to the Hero’s Journey, a story form based on Joseph Campbell's monomyth The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Tammy shares how she used this template to become the hero of her own story and how you can do the same.

What will you learn in this course?

  • You’ll learn the most common mistakes memoir writers make and how to avoid them
  • You’ll see why and how you are the hero of your story (and how to own that on the page)
  • You’ll understand each stage of the Hero’s Journey and, through discovery questions, know which life events belong in your memoir

Who should take this course?

This class is for anyone who wants to write a memoir, whether you are just beginning or have a complete first draft.
