Preserve family stories and create your personal legacy. This 2-session workshop will guide you through the beginning steps of writing stories for your memoir or other legacy document. In this class students will learn how to master snap writing, select topics, make stories interesting, edit, and organize their memoir. Writing exercises, group discussions and story sharing are designed to encourage and motivate participants. Students need to bring a 3-ring binder and a spiral notebook.
