If you've been wanting to write about family experiences but don't know how to begin -- If you remember bits and pieces of events and want to jumpstart your memory to include more detail -- If you would love to share your written story with your children, your family, your friends or even with readers as a published work ---
You're in great company! Memoirs and personal essays are incredibly popular, television shows like NBC's "Who Do You Think You Are" and PBS' "The History Detectives" offer entertaining sneak peeks into our dramatic pasts. Your story could be just as compelling! Parents and grandparents are passing on their personal history to their children and grandchildren in ever increasing numbers.
Now, so can you! Author Mardi Jo Link will lead an hour-long mini-workshop to get you started. Bring paper, pencil, a family photograph and a desire to write life stories.
