Writing Women’s Lives
with Sheila Weller
Sheila is most drawn to tell the stories of exceptional women. Her class is for writers who share this passion. Whether your subject is contemporary or historical, if you want to bring the inner life of a remarkable woman to your pages, this class is for you. The class is equally appropriate for women writing memoirs. Often the difference between successful and unsuccessful memoirs is the strength of the story arc. No matter how interesting the episodes in your subject’s life, they must flow together in a sequence that keeps the reader anxious to know what comes next. Sheila achieves this gracefully in her writing, and will help her students to understand and master the concept.
