My Life, One Story at a Time

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 7:15 PM - 9:45 PM

The goal in this ‘Guided Autobiography’ workshop is to capture your life experiences in six short pieces of autobiographical writing (true stories) for those who will survive you—or for yourself later in life. Knowing that you are writing not for publication but to set the record straight (in your own mind, if nothing else) may liberate you, allowing you to frankly explore your life choices and experiences. Participants will write a two-page (500-word max) story to bring to the first session to read aloud —about a turning point in your life, or a time when you made a choice that changed your life. The emphasis here is on storytelling— making yourself and important friends and family characters in your stories. Note: there will be no critique—so you can relax enough to tell your story frankly, and find your natural voice.
