Writing Life Stories Workshop

Writing Life Stories Workshop


Event Date:
Wednesday, May 23 2018

What is the event about?

Students take Writing Life Stories classes to leave a legacy for loved ones and learn more about themselves. Unlike in memoir classes, participants write quickly and easily about carefully chosen themes. There isn’t a focus on the craft of writing, but rather on the raw story.

In this workshop, you'll gain insight about the guided autobiography method taught for over 30 years to thousands of students. After an exercise and priming questions, you'll write briefly. You then share this story with a supportive group.

Extensive research reveals that while on this exploration and after sharing their stories, students gain increased resilience and self-confidence, more compassion for others and a greater appreciation for life.

If you're facing writer's block or are overwhelmed by the process of writing your life stories, join us for this 1-day workshop. No writing experience necessary. Confidentiality required.

1-day workshop (3 hours) $30 per person. (Special pricing for institutional partners.) Register as soon as possible. If low registration 7 days before event, workshop might be canceled
