THE MEMOIR WHISPERER SERVICES
taming your written life story
These personalized services are designed for those writing or hoping to write a personal or family history narrative. Through telephone consultation, manuscript review, or group workshops, THE MEMOIR WHISPERER™ can help you clarify your goals for the your project; strengthen your confidence; create a comfortable and productive writing process; maximize the strengths of your story and manuscript; articulate your memories, values and life lessons; eliminate blocks and challenges; and share your work in the way best suited to it and your desired impact for it.
All of THE MEMOIR WHISPERER™ services are personally provided by Suzanne Fox. Suzanne has taught memoir, journaling, life story and family history writing to more than two thousand students over the past two decades. Suzanne’s first book, the memoir Home Life: A Journey of Rooms and Recollections, was published by Simon & Schuster; featured in Elle, Mirabella and Glamour magazines; and selected as an Editor’s Choice book by the Chicago Tribune. A graduate of the MFA Program in Writing at the prestigious Columbia University School of the Arts, she is a regular contributor to Publishers Weekly and has been awarded residencies at Yaddo, the Studio Center and the Atlantic Center for the Arts.
Here's what just a few of the writers who have booked or attended THE MEMOIR WHISPERER™ offerings have to say:
—Suzanne has an unerring ability for identifying where a memoir manuscript goes off-course and helping the writer re-align it with his or her gifts and goals. She was there for me at every step of the process, offering support and guidance with wisdom, insight, and generosity. I don't believe my book would be finished or published today without her help.
—This workshop was so much fun—and so immensely helpful! I can't wait to get back to my writing with all of these new tools to use.
—I attended the Picturing Our Lives workshop with two friends and all of us feel transformed. I can't believe how much I learned in only two hours. I'm definitely going to do some writing from my personal and family photos using the writing prompts and insights the class shared.
—I'm amazed by the depth of Suzanne's knowledge of the history and techniques of personal history as well as her expertise in publishing generally. I feel so lucky to have an expert of this caliber accessible to me!
