Maybe you want to preserve the stories of your life for your family; maybe you want to write them solely for yourself—to better understand what made you who you are. Maybe you feel you have a story to tell that the wider world needs to know. E.L. Doctorow said, “Anyone at any age is able to tell the story of his or her life with authority.” Memory Workshop will help you find that authority by introducing you to a simple method of turning your memories into words.  1 ½  hour workshop
