This all-day online session will provide an introduction to writing your life story, two pages at a time. Participants will be given some basics about writing, a theme to write on, and priming questions to get memories flowing. Using a method called Guided Autobiography, participants will be guided through exercises designed to stimulate memory and encourage creativity.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have learned some tricks to prime memories and have a new completed written theme for an autobiography. The day-long class will kick start the writing process so participants can continue on their own, or the class can serve as preparation to attend a more advanced six-week Guided Autobiography session.

Note: Participants are asked to bring an object for show and tell: a photo, a special piece of jewelry, a medal or award-anything that holds a good memory. Participant should be prepared to talk about this special object in a few sentences.
