Why write a rebel memoir? To share information, to share a story, to create art, to motivate/inspire action, to educate outside the system, to confess.
Why haven’t you written your story?
Are you scared you’ll come off as narcissistic for wanting to write about yourself?
Don’t know where to start?

Worry can sometimes hold us hostage from being able to create. This course is designed for you to be able to say, f–k you, worry and then get words on the page.

In this course you will learn all about:

The universe wants you to write your story, unfortunately, most of the time it isn’t going to automatically align everything so you can take a year off life to drink tea on your porch and write a page a day. Not unless you put in the work and set yourself up to be in a position to do that. You have to prove to the universe you want to be a writer by writing. By showing up.
If you were looking for a traditional memoir 101 class you’ve come to the wrong place. I want to push you to think outside the box when it comes to memoir writing. I want you to write what scares you. I want you to always be questioning what you are writing, to learn when to remove chunks of writing from the memoir, and have the strength to keep in the hard truths.
“Writers know that when we write, we feel the world move; it is flexible, crammed with possibilities.” – David Grossman
