You have a story to tell, but perhaps you are uncertain about how to begin. When you take the time to preserve stories from your life, you deepen your appreciation for the life you’ve lived and help friends and family to connect to you. This step-by-step workshop helps participants collect stories into a memoir. Explore which stories might be worth sharing, how to outline and write stories, and ways to document personal artifacts in a memoir that can be passed on and saved for the future. Patty Martin has an MA in writing and communication with a master’s certificate in creative writing, and an ME in educational leadership. She has taught high school for 20 years and has authored six instructional books on writing. She bases this workshop on her book, Letters to the Future: The Simple Guide for Writing Your Memoir, which will give you many helpful ways to access and structure your story so that you can begin to get it on paper.
