Writing Your Life’s Story: Autobiography and Memoir

Marlene Schiwy
July 14-18, 2014

Whether you’re 18 or 80, you are living your own story. There are a lot of good reasons to write that story down: to help understand your life’s purpose and direction, to give as a gift to family and friends, to publish. Whatever your motivation, this workshop introduces you to the endless creative possibilities of autobiographical writing. Class time includes informal lectures, discussion, writing time, and feedback for those who want it. Excerpts from a variety of published autobiographies and memoirs serve as the basis for discussion. Explore the fascinating – and possibly undiscovered – territory of your own life.
