Your doorway to unlimited self expression

Mar 26, 2017

Gerald and his co-host Cheyenne Cockrell have a spirited discussion about writing confessional, self-revealing stories.

  • When is a memoir likely to morph into fiction?
  • You have your opinions and your impressions, but what's your approach to the facts?
  • How should you portray real-life characters who might be offended by their portrayals?
  • How is it that many memoir manuscripts are actually two books in one?
  • When do you need a developmental editor? A ghostwriter?
  • What real-life details will engage readers?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.
