Author Elizabeth Van Ingen and poet, writer, and editor Jennifer Phelps will discuss how to write memoir at this salon. How do you turn your personal story into a book? What form should it take? Do you write with specific themes in mind, or do they just emerge? Should it be a braided story or chronological? Are you revealing too much “personal stuff”? If you’ve always thought you wanted to write your memoir, we look forward to an exciting and lively conversation.
Elizabeth Van Ingen ( is the author of Kismet: from the Joy of Romance to the Agony of Alzheimer’s, a finalist for the 2014 Colorado Book Award in the memoir category and Jennifer Phelps ( is a freelance editor and writer in the Denver area.
