From Heather Lamb, a popular & frequent contributor to our LIFE STORIES section tells us:
“It is next to impossible to select just one article from the magazine. I love the book reviews, as they help me decide what to put on my list of to-reads, and I love the life stories. They are, after all, mini-moirs. But what is the most helpful to me personally are the articles with tips and opinions of authors who have actually done the tough part for all of us—writing a successful memoir! The suggestions leading to websites opens me up even further to advice and viewpoints to which I would not otherwise be exposed. Your magazine is a gold mine for all of us who want to write. You’ve done the hard work, Viga, and we reap the benefits! Thank you for your insight and hard work. As I go from page to page, I am impressed by how you tie one section into another. These magazines will remain a permanent part of my instructional library.”
and from Kathleen Hewitt who found “Memoirabilia” via the wonderful interview published by Matilda Butler of Women’s Memoirs.com we received these words of praise and encouragement:
“I just learned of this beautiful magazine. Thank you for the creation and thank you for providing more opportunities for my writing and the writing of others. It’s been a really long winter here in the Northeast and writing can get one through. Good luck with this venture and showcasing, also, what is a skillful, ‘draw me in’, style of writing. “
Kathleen also told me how refreshing it was to find a magazine to which you don’t have to pay to submit and that
“One of the memoir sites I check into periodically found me learning that we are full of memoir…always, so many stories. You will see my name again as I can’t wait to submit to the magazine. “
Kathleen is right! We have so many stories inside us and the more we write our memoirs, the more stories are recalled. We look forward to receiving Kathleen’s stories and yours. And as she said, it costs you nothing to submit.
So send along your 750-word stories anytime to firstname.lastname@example.org
I can’t wait to read them and share them with our readers.
