Memoir requires a mix of fiction and nonfiction editing skills, and the personal nature of the story affects the relationship between the author and editor. Melissa Wuske, an experienced memoir editor, will discuss the market for memoir, the strengths and common pitfalls of the genre, and how to forge effective partnerships with authors.
