Due to COVID- 19 and recommendations regarding public gatherings, these classes may switch to online. Participants will need a computer or device with a webcam and microphone to participate.

 Guided Autobiography 1 and 2 will start in April, a great month to kick start your summer writing.  I’m happy to have two venues this spring.

Guided Autobiography 1

April 20, 2020 – May 25, 2020 (six consecutive Mondays) – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

April 21, 2020 – May 26, 2020 (six consecutive Tuesdays) – 10:00 am to noon

Cost:  $250.00

I will provide an inspiring and supportive environment for participants, using proven, engaging exercises, priming questions and themes to spark creativity, self-awareness and memory recall to start writing your autobiography.

Over the six-week course, I will approach different themes and common experiences to create a broad range of stories focusing on major life events. No previous writing experience is needed, but most participants do find their writing skills improve! For many, these life stories provide a legacy for their grandchildren and those who follow, and for others it is a good tool for reflection on their life and their milestones.
