Is there a story you want to leave behind for generations to come?  For the world?  Maybe just your family?  Memoir writers say that writing their stories is one of the most rewarding activities they’ve experienced. They say it reconnects, energizes them, and allows them to appreciate their life in a way they couldn’t imagine they would have. And, what a gift to your future readers!! 


There are many ways to accomplish writing your memoir. The hardest part is making the decision and getting started. Need Help?


I can assist you in various ways:

  1. Coaching and Guidance throughout the writing process to give you confidence. This includes helping you organize your thoughts, outline your memoir, and develop a writing plan. I can also offer feedback and advice on structure, tone, and style as you progress.

  2. Provide Writing Assistance by reviewing, editing, and proofreading your drafts, suggesting improvements to refine your writing and to make it more engaging and coherent.

  3. Help Create an Oral Archive If you don’t wish to write a book but still want to preserve your story. By conducting recorded interviews with you, capturing your memories, experiences, and anecdotes, we can then edit and compile an audio archive or podcast-style series for you to share with others.

Ultimately, the approach we take will depend on your preferences and goals. Whether you want to write your memoir or create an oral archive, I’m here to provide the necessary support and expertise to bring your story to life.

Side Note: My love for teaching and coaching Memoir Writing began when my mother and father passed on. I still had so many unanswered questions about their lives. I decided to write my stories so my sons would know me while I was still alive and be able to ask questions about what I might have left out.

Jasmyne’s precise guidance is always relevant and valuable. Her one-on-one coaching sessions have been invaluable in helping me with the organization and direction of my memoir, and in offering an insightful reflection that has helped me to discriminate my own mental and emotional obstacles.
