This title shows how to craft compelling art out of personal experience. Everyone has a story to tell. ""Fearless Confessions"" is a guidebook for people who want to take possession of their lives by putting their experiences down on paper - or in a Web site or e-book. Enhanced with illustrative examples from many different writers as well as writing exercises, this guide helps writers navigate a range of issues from craft to ethics to marketing and will be useful to both beginners and more accomplished writers. The rise of interest in memoir recognizes the power of the genre to move and affect not just individual readers but society at large. Sue William Silverman covers traditional writing topics such as metaphor, theme, plot, and voice and also includes chapters on trusting memory and cultivating the courage to tell one's truth in the face of forces - from family members to the media - who would prefer that people with inconvenient pasts and views remain silent. Silverman, an award-winning memoirist, draws upon her own personal and professional experience to provide an essential resource for transforming life into words that matter. ""Fearless Confessions"" is an atlas that contains maps to the remarkable places in each person's life that have yet to be explored.

Review:

Fearless Confessions is a must. Silverman's discussion of the Voice of Innocence and the Voice of Experience is sure to become a classic. This book is truly indispensable. - Suzanne Paola, author of Tell It Slant: Writing and Shaping Creative Nonfiction ""I have long adored Sue Silverman's writing and her generous spirit, which comes through amply in this volume. What I especially appreciate is her unwillingness to compromise. To her, as to all good writers, this is above all an artistic endeavor, though writing can certainly have therapeutic value as well. But this how-to book should not be confused with a self-help book. Above all, it's about the art."" - Robin Hemley, Director, Nonfiction Writing Program at the University of Iowa
