Everyone has fascinating experiences, but getting away from 'I was born on June 14, 1946' is a learned skill. In this three-day course, we'll start you down the path of doing justice to your rich, meaningful life. You'll learn to breathe life into the people, places, and events of your life so others can visualize what it was like to walk in your shoes. We'll also cover how to determine the scope and format of your story; how to anchor your story in the times in which you lived; how to write about family skeletons and other sensitive topics; how to rivet reader attention with compelling beginnings,suspense, and humor; and how to ignore your internal editor and write as easily as you talk.
