Telling Your Story: Memoir Writing
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 presentation 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.
Looking for a Speaker?
If you'd like to have a great speaker for a group or instructor for a writing class or workshop, please contact me. I enjoy speaking to library audiences and community organizations, and sharing my enthusiasm for writing with students.
I have talks and workshops ready to deliver, or I can develop one to suit your interests and needs.
