Location: The Village Writing School

Memoir Writing with Marilyn Collins

Join this fun and interactive writing workshop and lean to write your own life story. You know, the one you’ve always promised yourself you’d write. Take this opportunity to tell your story, your way. You’ll learn to select which stories to tell, tips on organizing all that memorabilia and photographs, how not to start a family feud, and much more. You’ll learn, write, and share. Everyone has stories worth telling and preserving—and so do you. “When other people define the story for you, they are likely to define it incorrectly.” (Kim Goodwin)
