Congratulations on the terrific webinar! I wasn’t able to tune in live but enjoyed the recording this morning. It was the most informative and helpful webinar I’ve ever watched. I’m looking forward to your upcoming topics, craft of memoir, and marketing memoir. Thank you, Matilda and Kendra!

I was not able to listen in live, but checked out your webinar today. You gals are terrific: knowledgeable, helpful, and entertaining. Please keep me posted. I’ll have a question or two in future–especially the next one on craft. Thanks.

I wasn’t able to join the live webinar either, but I’m happy to have indulged in the recorded version. I’m ghosting a memoir about one woman’s wild ride through the cultural evolutions of the mid-twentieth century. She watched with me. After wavering a bit, she’s now feeling comfortable, hopeful, and courageous. Many thanks and all best to you both.

I’m so glad I was persistent in trying to access your webinar. I was successful this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed listening to the questions and answers. You both are such a great resource for memoir writers. I look forward to being with you on future webinars. Thanks so much.

Hi Madeline: I’ve explored your problem and believe that it is a bandwidth issue. You probably saw that Kendra was sort of “pixelated.” That was a bandwidth issue. Once I saw that the video was trying to load on your screen, I realized that your Internet was just a little too slow at that particular time. Glad you were able to see the webinar. We appreciate your comments. – Matilda

Hi Karen: Thanks for your comment. I am delighted that your client found the webinar helpful is understanding more about the process. – Matilda

Hi Cardy: Send us your questions anytime. We got some great questions during the webinar and were not able to respond since we were running long. Therefore, we are thinking about doing another short webinar — focused on these additional questions — before we turn to Craft of Memoir. You can send your question(s) to me at: matilda (at) womensmemoirs (dot) com. –Matilda

Carol: Thanks for coming to our webinar. Kendra and I are really excited about the fantastic response. We’re going to develop the next ones soon. – Matilda

Mary: We’ll be sure to let you know about the time and date for the next webinar. That’s for being there. – Matilda

Have listened to the webinar today in sunny Melbourne – thank you Matilda and Kendra for an informative presentation and thanks to all the pertinent questions fellow writers asked! It was almost like having a discussion across the table:) I’ll look forward to the ones planned for the future.
warm regards, as always – Mairi

Hi Mairi: It is lovely to hear from you — hope your trip to the US was everything that you and your daughter hoped for. We continue to be jealous of your amazing train rides.

Glad you were able to see the webinar today. We got some more great questions after (and even during the webinar) and intend to put together another one soon.

Really enjoyed tonight’s webinar. I’m now armed with ways to improve the memoirs I’ve been working on for other people. My own will come someday. :) Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

Was able to listen to the recorded version today. You touched on an issue I am dealing with. I guess I am writing a combination of family history and memoir – our family has spent summers at the same community in Quebec since 1879 but my sons will not likely continue the tradition so I want them to have a record of the adventures and stories of five generations. Part memoir, part genealogy, part family history. Luckily we have lots of archival resources AND oral history.

Hi Matilda and Kendra – thanks again for another great webinar, which I watched today. I loved Kendra’s comment ‘don’t be a purist, write a good story’, sometimes the more we learn about the craft of writing the more we try to be too perfect:)
For those who celebrate Easter warm regards from Australia for a blessed and peaceful time to spend with family and friends.
