about this event

Everyone has a story to tell—especially now! Are you Interested in exploring and crafting your life stories? Join us for the fall Life Stories virtual workshop series!

Life Stories is a 10-part workshop for writers of all experience levels (including none). Using prompts, open-ended inquiries, and exercises, you’ll capture imagery from your memory and learn the techniques to move those memories onto the page. If you have always wanted to write, if you feel you have a story or a book in you, or if you simply want to move your writing to the next level, the Life Stories workshop will help get you there.
