What is a Living Memoir?

A Living Memoir is a narration of a life being lived. It's a hybrid genre composed of creative nonfiction texts in progress found in the web and in print which the reader can experience firsthand. Besides traditional publishing, Living Memoirs involve the use of web products, tools, and artistic modalities available to the narrator. (definition as of Jan 29th 2024 by NCT)

Nica carefully discovered the Living Memoir while writing her first book, Kwento by Nica, as an MFA Student at San Jose State UniversityIf an oral story could be written and collaged with multi-social media, the Living Memoir would be it.
