    Such meaty course. At first, I felt I had not gotten my money’s worth. But watching all six through, then going back and working with the workbook gave me such clarity.
    Use universal themes. It sounds so simple. Its not. Well worth it.

  2. Eleanor Windman

    Loved it, You are so clear, great speaking voice and charm. The message is still a little fuzzy for me which is a good thing in my case. The truer it is , the harder it is to break bad habits.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to look at this from a different perspective.

  3. John Diaconis

    This is the perfect course for anyone that wants to write memoir. it’s got helpful formulas to use, tips on topics, arguments and guidance on scenes to use. Instructor Is clear and easy to listen to. You can listen to course over and over again.

  4. Meital Rusdia

    I purchased this course and listened to the entire 6 episodes at least 3 or 4 times and I have fully completed the accompanying workbook. I found it to be extremely worthwhile for walking me through all the structural and other craft related considerations for my memoir. Marion is a brilliant engaging instructor and expert. My true memoir guru. I highly recommend all her classes and coaching services – but this course in particular has guided me enormously.
