Quiz: What is Memoir?

Updated on March 28, 2013

The Quiz about Memoir and Writing

There is much confusion about a memoir definition. People use the words autobigraphy, memoir, biography and creative non-fiction interchangeably. Is that correct? No!

This quiz will help you understand the terms, their meanings and find out a bit more about writing and techniques in general.

Additionally, we will learn of memoir examples, books and prompts that will help you on the road to becoming a memoirist.

Do you know the answers? Let's find out!

William Zinsser is funny, poignant and a born teacher. He engages his readers and while he's telling you a story, you actually learn something. This was one of the first books about writing memoir that I read. I highly recommend it!

      Let's just say that not having an TV and not watching it cost me some points., so I only got 75%.
