Write Your Life Story Workshop
Write Your Own Life Story Workshop
with Leigh Morrow
Have you tried to write your life story only to get overwhelmed? The unfinished work floats around your desk, on your computer, or gets lost in a drawer of papers. You keep meaning to get back to it, but you never do.
Using a method called Guided Autobiography, participants will be guided through exercises designed to stimulate your memory and encourage your creative self. You will be given some basics about writing, a theme to write on and priming questions to get your memories flowing. At the end of the workshop you will have learned some tricks to prime your memories and have a new completed written theme for your Autobiography. The day long class will kickstart your writing so you can continue on your own or prep you to attend a more advanced six week Guided Autobiography session.
Bring a bag lunch as we will have a working lunch as we write our memories.
Leigh Morrow is a certified teacher of Guided Autobiography from The Birren Institute for Autobiographical Studies in California. Leigh has spent her career helping people tell their stories as an investigative reporter for both radio and television for nearly three decades.
