Award-winning author offers memoir-writing tips


Humans have a breathtaking ability to survive horrible situations or events … and share their stories with the world.

For instance, Alexandra Amor was caught in a cult for ten years. Some time after her escape, she decided to write about her experience and the healing process.

Amor won an award for her memoir Cult: A Love Story, so when she offers up advice for writing and editing your own first-person account about a difficult subject — as she did on The Creative Penn — any aspiring memoirist would be wise to read and heed.
