Lindsey Grant

In this week’s episode we celebrate Lindsey Grant’s new book, Ready, Set, Memoir, a new book out in collaboration with NaNoWriMo, and which features many Write-minded past guests. This week’s show is full of memoir tips, and also supports aspiring memoirists to stay the course in their process—because we know it’s challenging. Ready, Set, Memoir is a book—and an episode—that touches upon the highs and lows of memoir writing.


Lindsey Grant was the program director for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for three years. She is the co-author of the NaNoWriMo-guided writing journal Ready, Set, Novel!, and the memoir Sleeps with Dogs. She holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and English from Mills College in Oakland, California, and she just moved back to Georgia from Zurich, Switzerland, which might be fodder for another memoir.
