What you'll learn in this writing class:

Everything in your life, from the mundane to the extraordinary, is a story waiting to be told. Many of us want to leave behind a record of our lives that we were here. Yes, our footprint.

In this workshop, you will discover your own unique and powerful story. We will use the memoir form of writing to encourage you to live out loud and to help you comprehend the value of your life. “If you are not afraid of the voices in you, you will not fear the critics outside you,” so says Natalie Goldberg. Writing can let you hear your voice above the critics. 

Did you know that there were health benefits to writing? There is recent evidence to support the claim that increased intellectual activity and brain stimulation i.e. recording one’s memories can lower the individual risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Through fun exercises, practical techniques and group discussion, this insightful, fun and practical workshop, will help you uncover the writer hiding in you. You will find your authentic voice, along with a way to express it. You’ll be surprised at how great a writer you can become.

We will also share how to become a published writer. You’ll learn all about the publishing industry from writing a query letter to finding a publisher.

Bring your favorite pen and a writing journal. All levels welcome.
