The Life Stories Workshop: A memoir writing class for people with stories in their hearts

Come escape the grind for weekly, biweekly, or monthly sessions of soul-nourishing writing with a small group of like-minded folks. In this class, participants will delve into their own life stories with the help of our memoir writing workbooks, distributed in class and packed with creative inspiration including a theme to write about, a handful of creative exercises and a writing tip. Participants will write at home and then gather and share their pieces with supportive feedback, laughter and yummy snacks. Beginner and seasoned students very welcome.
