Memoir Writing Workshop Nov. 3

When we share our stories, we help to ensure that our personal histories and legacies will be passed on to the next generation. We all have a story or two to tell, and whether you’re interested in capturing a few of the most memorable, or writing a full length memoir, this workshop will help get you started. Together we’ll work to help you uncover your stories, develop storytelling techniques used by successful memoirists, and explore ways to dig deep and maximize your creative potential.

Led by Lucy Adkins and Becky Breed and presenting all new material, the workshop will be held Saturday November 3, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska (20th and D Streets) in the art room. The cost is $35. To register, contact or call 402-476-7565. Come and write with us!
