Thank you sooo much for this class!!! You’ve provided me with answers to questions I did not even know I needed to ask. I feel what I learned from you on the very first module was worth the price of the entirety of the course. –Marcella Moy
I am so grateful that at 8 weeks I am fully organized and have a regular writing routine. At this rate, I will have my first draft of the book completed within 2 months. I am so grateful for the support and help to get me where I am today! So thank you, Tanja Pajevic and my fellow writers for helping me get where I am today! And, I am really, really enjoying the writing and feeling quite delighted by how this is turning out. –Elena Davis
The Memoir Mastermind journey has been not only educational, but has also provided the space for all of the participants to build a community that will be treasured long after our books are published. Tanja’s guidance and coaching brought us so much closer to fulfilling the dream of telling our stories using the craft of memoir. I can’t imagine getting this far without the Mastermind experience! –Cindy Powell
