Many of us have important personal stories to tell, but how do we transform interesting anecdotes or fragmentary episodes into fully realized pieces of writing that will engage and move readers? Join fiction writer and memoirist Nancy McCabe in exploring techniques to find the story you’re really trying to tell and turn it into a lively, engaging piece. Through discussion, examples, and writing exercises, you'll learn to apply devices from fiction to create or enrich your own memoirs.

Nancy McCabe is the author of six books, most recently Can This Marriage be Saved? A Memoir (Missouri 2020) and From Little Houses to Little Women: Revisiting a Literary Childhood (Missouri 2014). Her work has appeared in many magazines and anthologies, including, most recently, Salon, the Brevity Blog, Essay Daily, Entropy, ACM, and Women Talk Money: Breaking the Taboo. She's the recipient of a Pushcart and eight recognitions on Best American notable lists.
