Do you have a story to tell?
San Diego Memoir Writers Association is a community of local writers committed to the craft and business of memoir writing. Our purpose is to create a community of inspired, nurtured, and educated memoirists. One of the ways in which we do this is by hosting monthly member meetings with speakers who educate our writers on both the craft and business of memoir writing. Writers of all levels are welcome and encouraged to join us to help build their own writing tribe.
Founded in December of 2016, San Diego Memoir Writing Association is located at Liberty Station in Point Loma. Please send us an email if you’d like to learn more about the organization, get involved, or come speak at one of our monthly member events.
We look forward to meeting you!
