Sarah White and Erin Farrell Adamany talk travel writing with Carol Koby

I have been working with Erin Farrell Adamany on her memoir about a fascinating 5-week trip to Morocco with her mother and two children. We were recently interviewed on Carok Koby’s radio show, “All About Living.”

The program allowed me to talk about some of the writing tips I offer in my book, Write Your Travel Memoirs: 5 steps to transform your travel experiences into compelling essays. But more importantly, Carol’s interview allowed me to hear Erin talk about the experience of working with a memoir writing coach.

Erin read an excerpt from her memoir about her first morning in Marrakesh–and a thought-provoking encounter with a palm reader in Jamaa el Fna Square. You can listen to the 51-minute program here: Erin’s story starts at 32:30.
