Do you want to become a memoirist for elders?

For twenty years, memoirist, personal historian and reminiscence expert, Mary O’Brien Tyrrell, operated a successful home business helping elderly clients capture their life stories in published memoirs. Now she’s sharing her years of memoir writing wisdom and know-how so you can jump start your own memoir writing business.

Here’s what a student from last year’s class, Lori Nelson, had to say about the training she received from Mary in the St. Catherine University class:

“Mary O’Brien Tyrrell’s class, Jumpstart Your Memoirs Writing Business, truly helped jumpstart a new career for me in memoir writing. After taking the class last July, I was already successfully up and running my own business by September of the same year. I could not have accomplished this feat without skillful guidance from Mary and the knowledge, wisdom and graciousness with which she shares her business experience. Attending this course changed my life and set me on a new life path, an exciting path I never imagined. For anyone interested in memoir writing, this course is not to be missed!”
