"Ronit's keen editing eye and homework suggestions helped me identify what wasn't working in my memoir and how to fix it. I felt energized by her feedback instead of discouraged. I wish I had worked with her earlier in the process!"

Stephanie Weaver, Memoir in progress and author of The Migraine Relief Plan and The Migraine Relief Plan Cookbook

"Ronit really is so gifted at teaching memoir."

Rhonda Douglas, Founder, Resilient Writers

"I was so happy when Ronit said she could talk to my Zoom writers. After reading her two books, I knew she’d have a lot to share. I was right. She is a deep well of memoir craft ideas. She talked to my writers about how to choose what scenes and information to include in their work. She was clear, concise, and shared examples so my writers could better understand how to put her advice to use. While she Zoomed in to talk to my writers, I benefitted as well, and walked away feeling a little bit smarter about how to move forward in my own writing."

Morgan Baker, Senior Affiliated Faculty at Emerson College, and author of the award-winning memoir, Emptying the Nest: Getting Better at Goodbyes

"I loved your workshop, and so did everyone else. Really wonderful."

Traci Skuce, Founder, The Writing Journey
