Writing Life Stories Workshop

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.
