Turning Life Stories into Memoirs (Tuesdays, 9:00am-11:00am)   NEW!

Do you have a story from your life you’ve been wanting to share with others? How do you take the past and bring it to life? What things should you include, and what should be left out? How do you take a personal story and make it relevant to others? Should you get permission from people mentioned in the story, and what laws do you need to know about? In this class we’ll learn the answers to these questions, as well as additional topics, including how to get started and creating a plan to finish; choosing an authentic voice for your memoir; whose stories can you—and should you—tell; the benefits of traditional publishing vs. self-publishing and how to go about each. So, if you’ve been longing to get those stories down, join us and get started writing that memoir. Class size limit: 15.
