Life Stories Intensive

Loading Events

Whether you want to write a memoir, micro-memoir, blog, college essay, letter to your granddaughter, or use your own life as the basis for fiction, life story writing requires that we tell where we come from and who we are. Learn to identify your story’s essence, the truth it reveals, and to engage the reader through fictional techniques. Participants will leave inspired to begin or improve a work-in-progress.

Shortly before the start date participants will recieve an email with login info. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.
