Do you enjoy writing? Writing about your own life experiences or recording older relative’s family histories or stories gives a sense of belonging and purpose for both the writer and the recorder. These memoirs will become family treasures that can be passed down through the generations - an incomparable gift that will last forever. Weaving together poetry, stories, focused reflection, meditations and writing exercises, you will learn how to make the transition from memory to memoir. You will identify one potent period, a ‘slice of life’ and then explore it through vivid imagery, honest voice, compassion and a deep awareness of the larger issues at play that guide your story in a subliminal way.
Whether you are just beginning your writing journey or already on the path, you will leave the workshop with a collection of stories, poetry and a powerful writing invitation that will keep your writing focused and directed for months to come.
