Matilda Butler is a teacher (and student!) of memoir. She’s the co-publisher of Rosie’s Daughters, a collection of memoir pieces by women born during WWII. She has as many shelves of women’s memoirs in her library as I do children’s books–maybe more! I first met Matilda at the last East of Eden writers conference, and–when I was developing the memoir chapter in The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide, I asked her if I could pick her brain about things writers should be thinking about. She was kind, generous, and incredibly helpful. And she asked me if I’d do an interview with her for her Memoir Moments at http://womensmemoirs.com.
Matilda just put up the interview, so if you’d like to take a listen (Yes, it’s in AUDIO!), hop over to the post here.
