Marnie conducted my interview at the Whitstable Book Festival with skill and sensitivity. She was a good listener and took a genuine interest in her subject. We had a capacity audience for what was a very successful afternoon. Once I had decided that I needed to write a memoir, the next question was: where on earth do I start? I found her a very warm and helpful person. She was very well researched and her questions incisive and pertinent. She certainly helped make the event a success. Throughout the whole editing process I felt both expertly held and simultaneously challenged to push my memoir to rewarding new heights.
Marnie instinctively knows how to inspire with insightful suggestions whilst marshalling disparate strains of thought into cohesive order. My project was particularly exposing on a personal level and Marnie handled everything with extraordinary insight…. Although I met you when the book was almost finished, you were a breath of fresh air, who helped me dig deep and bring the suppressed memories to the surface in a couple of the most difficult chapters I had to write.
I was delighted when Marnie agreed to provide a workshop for the Kent Festival of Writing. Zuihitzu, the Japanese art of following the pen, proved a very attractive proposition for our delegates and we were oversubscribed. Neither Marnie or I wanted to turn anyone away, so it was a packed event! We were so pleased that the first draft arrived in time for us to read it as a family to Neil. I know he really enjoyed his couple of days with you. Thank you. Sarah Vines, brother of….

In the run-up weekend to our festival Marnie hosted a very well attended day of memoir-writing events, beginning with a moving, eloquent discussion in which she talked to author Sarah Pullen about her memoir A Mighty Boy. As an interviewer Marnie is a true professional, asking thought-provoking yet sensitive and heartfelt questions, and putting…. My darling, I have read the book from cover to cover out loud. It is a wonderful book. She was approachable, professional and communicative in the lead-up to the event and during the weekend she was wonderful. All delegates commented on her kind manner, her knowledge, and her ability to bring out the best writing in them.
I can highly recommend collaborating…. While reading your feedback yesterday the hairs were literally standing on my arms because I knew you were the right person to make this manuscript the best it can be…. A couple of weeks after the Memoir Writing Weekend, I am reflecting on what a difference it has made. For a long while I have had a desire to share my story, I did not have a clue how or where to start.
Perhaps you just want a few copies printed for family and friends, or a book launch. I can advise on how to do that as well. Wherever you are in the world, we can work together. Since , I have worked with 60 authors across the world including the United States, Australia, Lebanon and Nigeria as well as closer to home in Kent and throughout the UK. Maybe you're here because you wish your parents or grandparents would write their memoirs. Maybe you'd like to try doing it for them?
I run a variety of classes and retreats and can teach you how. I also offer gift vouchers for special occasions so that they can work with me as a gift from you. Please email me at marnie yourmemoir. I will gladly call you back or meet or Skype with you with absolutely no obligation. I look forward to hearing from you. Terry Waite CBE. Joanne James. Michael Fuller QPM.

We had a capacity audience for what was a very successful afternoon. Once I had decided that I needed to write a memoir, the next question was: where on earth do I start? I found her a very warm and helpful person. She was very well researched and her questions incisive and pertinent. She certainly helped make the event a success. DiFranco needed all of her pages to ready readers to see her so raw. An indie celebrity, she had to write and write and write in order to dispel the many narratives that sought to speak for her. Which is to say that the writing in No Walls and the Recurring Dream lacks the poetic density of her songs in favor of the purposefulness of prose.
Divided into numbered sections and then further into sub-sections, the book bears the architecture of albums. Can I talk to you as a friend? DiFranco and her publishers surely know the audience to whom she speaks: the legions of fans who feel, however perversely, that they already know the writer. In broaching the subject of friendship, DiFranco asks permission to break with expectations for the sake of true knowing.
The genre has a way of making an audience feel like the stage is a formality, especially in the age of social media when viewers need a reminder that celebrities are more distant than they appear. I think that for DiFranco, No Walls and the Recurring Dream is a gesture in that spirit — not a literary masterpiece, but the passion of a woman searching for a friend. If we are to know her, we must see her.
