Do you have stories from your life that you’d like to share with your family or with the world? Writing a memoir is a great way to gain and give insight into the events, people, and places that have been significant for you. This workshop will help you discover ways to give shape to your unique personal story, to honor your own truth and wisdom, and to make your experiences come alive for your readers. You will get a head start on the writing process and come away with fresh ideas about how to tell your story in a clear and compelling way.
