Start Writing Your Family History

The single most important thing you can do for your family may be the simplest of all: tell the story. In this workshop we explore how to write and share stories that reveal your family’s formative experiences, values, and life lessons. The instruction method is five online sessions using my Zoom platform, plus participation in a Yahoo group for responding to discussion prompts and exchanging essays for review. The Zoom class sessions are recorded so if you miss one, you can still keep up with the class.
Class starts the week of January 21
