The Curriculum Manual

The Curriculum Manual is a proven, easy-to-use guide to lead successful workshops.

Our memoir workshop Curriculum Manual was tested over years as Denis Ledoux taught writing in varied venues—senior centers, university classrooms, writing retreats, pull-out high school groups, libraries, in his office, etc.

Over the years of trial and error, of refining my presentation, I have worked out the kinks in leading a memoir workshop. I have noticed that when I deviate from this memoir workshop curriculum, I can find myself at an impasse. ‘Why aren’t my writers getting it?’ I might wonder. Then I realize I skipped a step—or have reversed some. I have to go back and  cover the material as it is laid out in the memoir workshop Curriculum Manual. It’s that tightly written.
