WNBA-Sf Lunch n’ Learn

Writing a Memoir That is More Than a Memoir

Thursday, December 8, 2023 at Noon PT/3pm ET

If you’ve been around the memoir scene for very long, you’ve no doubt heard “Memoirs don’t sell.” As with any myth, there’s more that’s false about that statement than true. A more accurate statement is “Some memoirs don’t sell.” But many do!

Join bestselling memoir author Nita Sweeney for this Lunch N Learn in which she will discuss how to improve the odds that your memoir will sell.

Nita’s first book, the running and mental health memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target, not only sold to a publisher, it won awards, made lists, and continues to sell four years after it was published.

In this program, Nita will discuss:

  • Universal themes in memoir
  • Memoir as self-help
  • Memoir as how-to
  • Memoir as resource offering

Grab your lunch, a cup of coffee, and bring your best questions. Join us for a fun, interactive session.
