EVERYONE has a story to share. Discover how to capture your story, or help someone else capture their story, into a written format. Learn the difference between documenting a life, writing memoir pieces, and creative non-fiction.
Learn to write using the five senses as well as using moments of stillness found through guided meditation to stimulate your memories and stir your creative juices. Words will simply flow onto the page creating a lasting legacy for you and your family. Come and learn how to be still, be calm, and to be yourself. Or maybe, you'll find yourself somewhere along the way.
No writing or meditation experience is required. Sharing is also not required - this is your story, your way.
Thursday,Oct 19: Introductory Workshop. This workshop can be taken by itself or with the following 3 classes as a group.
Thursday, Oct 26: How do you want your memoir project to look?
Thursday, Nov 2: Writing your story - the middle bit, fun and tasty!
Thursday, Nov 9: Next steps to a finished project and helping someone else document their story.
Hope to see you there!
