Irene’s virtual LIVE Memoir Writing Workshop was a fantastic experience! Her creative approach to the elements and structure of story were just the inspiration I needed to begin work on my memoir. I had a grand experience attending her workshop on Inis Mór several years ago. And she’s managed to capture much of that same magic virtually. Highly recommended!

I searched for weeks to find a rich resource to learn how to write a memoir.  I chose Irene Graham’s Memoir Writing Club.  Her workbook with right and left-brain exercises, extensive audio tutorials on her website, live meetings and expert review of final work made Irene’s Memoir Writing Club a superlative choice.  I loved every minute of it!

I have just completed the Memoir Course by Irene Graham. In truth I can say that apart from the delight of engaging with the course it also represents excellent value for money.

I found exactly what I was looking for. The course enabled me to discard a lot of what I had previously written and showed me the path towards creating a central theme and on to the finished product.

I enjoyed the online memoir writing course hugely. The layout and structure of the course was both helpful and intriguing. I also found the LIVE sessions with Irene and her constructive, honest feedback on written work really helpful. I can certainly recommend this course to anyone wishing to jump over their own shadow and start writing. Irene is encouraging, supportive, motivating and full of little bits of wisdom!

There are a few great educators in my life who have contributed to my developmental journey by asking questions, creating spaces for stories to emerge from these answers and then encouraged a public sharing of the stories. Your course is one of those.

Helen Sheil, Australia

I enjoyed the workshop immensely. I never thought I would have the confidence to put words on paper. I am changed. I am writing. I will continue to write. You have given me a great gift, for which I will be eternally grateful. You inspire confidence in me I never thought I could have outside of the corporate world. Thank you for your kindness, your constructive criticism, your sense of humor, and just for being who you are – a talented storyteller, coach, teacher and of course… totally kick ass woman!!
