You have a story to tell…
and you know your story will be meaningful to others—perhaps to your family, perhaps to a much wider audience. You’ve attended writing classes, workshops, and conferences. You’ve bought books on the writing life and set intentions to get your writing done. So where is that book? We will give you EVERYTHING YOU NEED to complete a draft of your memoir that is ready for its final developmental edit in nine months!
Cami is the author of the quest memoir Second Wind: One Woman’s Midlife Quest to Run Seven Marathons on Seven Continents and the co-editor of two anthologies of memoirs. She has coached hundreds of writers of all ages through the completion of projects varying in length from short poems to very, very long books. She has a passion for story! As a psychotherapist and as a writer, Cami excels at helping people figure out what it is they REALLY have to say. Her gift is to break down the daunting tasks in life into manageable bite-sized pieces for people so they can experience success.

One becomes a good writer by becoming a good reader. The Narrative Project requires writers to read and critique the work of others in a very specific way. This is part of the skills-building process. We are committed to helping you get your book written and to you building the skills, schedule, and support you need to that end.
