Memoir and Autobiography Publishers images

Memoirs and autobiographies are nonfiction genres that chronicle the writer’s life but in different ways.

A memoir is an account of a specific time in a writer’s life and focuses on the writer’s own memories, perceptions, and emotions.

An autobiography is a chronological history of the writer’s whole life. This style is less about the emotions associated with events and more about the facts of the events themselves.

If you’ve written a personal account of your life, whether in memoir or autobiography, and are ready to get your book published, check out this list.
