Ghostwriting, Collaborating, & Memoirs part 2

Cheryl Ricker joins Lit Up host, Angela Breidenbach, to talk about ghostwriting memoirs with the person whose story needs to be told. Tips on ghostwriting, how to collaborate on the story, and how to tell the story using plot points rather than the day-by-day. This episode is a perfect dovetail off of last week's Writing Memoir topic.
