Writing your life story is both a creative and cathartic process. As we write the stories of our past, we find comfort and peace from the memoir writing process. We cannot change the past, but we can change our perception of the past, and memoir writing can help us to do so. When we are at peace with ourselves, we heal and are at peace with others. This 3 hour workshop will help you start to heal through memoir writing.
We will do several in-class writing exercises, each dealing with parts of life that hold deeply emotional memories. This class is not therapy, and we will not be exploring psychological issues. Instead, you will be introduced to the power of memoir writing as a tool to examine your memories, and through that examination, begin to find catharsis and healing.
Previous participants in Ann's writing classes have been able to discover for themselves peace and acceptance under Ann's gentle and supportive guidance. In a very short time you will find yourself bonding and sharing with other class members. Join us for a fun and heart-warming experience.
With your $30 materials fee, you get numerous handouts plus your own copy of Writing Your Life: The Ultimate Guide to Telling Your Story with over five hundred writing prompts, dozens of helpful hints, and numerous tools to help you keep writing and healing after the workshop is over.
