The Curriculum Manual

The Curriculum Manual is a proven, easy-to-use manual.

Our Curriculum Manual was tested over four years as Denis Ledoux taught memoir 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, at times, I deviate from the manual, I can find myself at an impasse. ‘Why aren’t my writers getting it?’ I might wonder. Then I realize I skipped a step. I have to go back and  cover the material that is laid out in the manual.
