Wednesday, March 25, 7:30pm

Have you ever wanted to share your life story? Are you searching for a way to capture your legacy and leave a mark on the world?

If so, it’s time to write your memoir!

This event is designed to help you begin the process of translating your identity into a self-defining book. Whether you want to create a record of your life, share past experiences with others, or capture your love story in words, we’re here to make the process of writing your book viable and engaging. After all, everyone has a story to tell.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the central ideas pertaining to life-writing. That includes:- Defining the memoir
– Discussing the importance of theme
– Making memoirs accessible
– Incorporating personality into the text
– Finding a structure
– Confronting outlines
– Examining components of the memoir (introductions, dialogue, chapter breaks, etc.)

We’ll also have an interactive discussion that invites you to discuss your own story. The only requirement is interest; no need to prepare materials beforehand.

Memoirs allow us to reclaim the past so we can live a better future. Let’s get started together!
