Each year, GrubStreet’s Memoir Incubator program helps writers develop, deepen, revise, and finish their memoirs—and along the way, we’ve learned a few tricks we’re eager to share with you. Join the instructor of this program as she breaks down a year’s worth of craft concepts into 10 simple lessons you can get started applying to your memoir tomorrow.

As time allows, we’ll even try our hand at some of these concepts together.
