Keys to Meaningful Memoir Writing


Join us Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 10:30 a.m., when we welcome author Gail Kittleson as she presents, “Keys to Meaningful Memoir Writing.”

Kittleson explains, “(the) memoir genre borrows fiction techniques: description, characterization, narration, setting, and plot. Methods we employ to hook readers and create tension apply to memoir writing, and our own personal history influences our fiction. The point of memoir is to make meaning of the past, inclusive of a powerful character arc. It stands to reason that exploring memoir writing may enhance our fiction writing in ways we might not have imagined.”

A baby boomer Iowa farm girl, Kittleson appeared with her thick glasses at the local library counter every Saturday of her childhood and hauled home a new pile of books. Later, she earned her MA in TESOL and taught English as a Second Language and college expository writing. 

Over a ten-year period during her husband Lance’s deployments to the Middle East, Gail’s memoir developed, and another is presently with a publisher. Since the World War II bug bit her, she’s never been quite the same. Her Women of the Heartland fiction brings to life this challenging era’s make-do women whom she loves to introduce to new readers.

Gail delights in historical research, grandchildren, gardening in Northern Iowa, and Arizona’s Mogollon Rim in winter. Facilitating workshops fulfills her craving for teaching and she cheers other writers on through free-lance editing.
