Write your untold history for future generations! Don't let the precious story of your life and your ancestors/family fade away. Give a gift, leave a legacy for your grandchildren, or self publish a booklet for your family, or shape your work into a book for publication--let's work on this together! We will discuss topics and write, brainstorm, do hands on exercises, share work (written earlier as well as pieces we write during workshop), address various issues, answer questions, and offer suggestions. By the end of the three weeks, you will have an outline and core chapters which will serve as the pillars for your book, as well as plans for additional chapters if you are planning a larger project. A workshop for anyone who wants to write their unique story!  All levels welcome. New and beginning writers encouraged to attend! Seasoned memoirists invited to explore and experiment with new ways to approach your next book!
