    Life Tales: How to Write your Memoir - 8 classes

    You’ve dreamed of putting your life down in words, but now you ask yourself: Is my life really that interesting? How do I even start? Remember! Your life story is unique, as vivid, gripping, and heart-warming as by any famous writer. Writing your story and sending it out into the world (or just to your grandchildren) makes meaning of your life, validates it, displays the passages you took and those you did not. Discover your inner voice and master the elements of the craft with step-by-step techniques. Whether you’re new to memoir writing or wanting to refine, complete, and publish your memoir, this class is for you. Prompts and group exercises will guide you through the transformative process of memoir writing.
