Six Part Online Memoir Writing Course


Start Writing, Keep Writing was just the boost I needed to get back to work on my stagnating memoir. Not only did this course encourage me to get back to work on my memoir, but some of the writing challenges Marnie set helped me find a way into some other writing projects. Marnie offers empathetic, approachable and down-to-earth guidance through the highs and lows of memoir writing. My only complaint about the course? I wanted more!


This course was a joy! My initial hope of getting my memoir started has been exceeded in so many ways. Marnie’s enthusiasm for the subject is infectious, her sharing of knowledge and wide variety of examples spark so many ideas. It helps you really explore what you are wanting to say and how to say it, in a really nurturing and helpful way.

Are you seeking guidance on how to unravel your memories and turn them into prose that makes an impact?

Confused and not sure where to start?

Writing but floundering?

Lacking in time, motivation and clarity?

My online memoir writing course is now available for £180 - installment plan available.

Work on it at your own pace. Plus the course is captioned for accessibility. And if you need additional help, I am just an email/phonecall/Zoom chat away!

Want to chat with me in person about your memoir? You're bound to have some questions and I have the answers! Let me listen and advise on the challenges you face.

A one-to-one Zoom consult with me costs £45. But when you purchase the course before May 13th, you can buy a Zoom consult for just £40.

Or you can add two chats for £76 - just £38 each. And that way you'll save £24 on the quality, personal one-to-one guidance you need.

I'm looking forward to chatting with you helping you in any way that I can.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Marnie’s course but I’m delighted to have completed it. I’m just starting my memoir and now have a clear idea how to achieve it having soaked up all her wonderful advice and worked on her writing practices. Thank you so much Marnie!


Would highly recommend this course to all memoirists! Marnie breaks down everything you need to know in an interactive fun way. You will come out of each session with a jam packed reading list and feeling confident in what you need to write with lots of tips, tricks and writing prompts.


The course covers:

What success looks like to you, your intended audience, types of memoir, where to start, what to include, what to leave out, how long your book should be and how long it will take to write.

I will explain the various drafts and stages, the skills that a memoirist needs to develop and your common fears and how to overcome them.

I will ensure you understand the three essential types of writing that your book needs and how to show and tell.

I’ll talk about voice and theme and how you are the main character in your memoir, but also the narrator.

I will explain how to use time-of-writing voice and the stylistic elements of fiction to give your readers a powerful experience.

I will guide you on how to ground yourself when writing about difficult times and where to finish your story.

I will lead you in writing exercises and help you plan your writing in a realistic way that fits in with your life.

So, if you hear an inner voice urging you to put your life into words - listen!
And seize this chance to allow your stories step into the light.
