There is most certainly an art to writing memoir. Memoirs are one of our favorite genres at Communicator Academy but one of the most difficult to write (well). This week’s guest, author and speaker Susy Flory, joins us and gives us her best tips and experiences writing memoir. Susy explains exactly what makes a memoir good, the different types of memoir and a few of the rules for memoir.

If you are a writer, or aspire to be, this episode is for you. Kathi describes this episode as a master class so pull out your notebook and listen in.

Let’s have a winner!
