Telling Life Stories Part 1 and Part 2

woman writing in a notebook


Do you have a true story to tell? Have you thought of writing it down? Would you like to put your thoughts and memories on paper and share them with others? Join local author Michèle Vinet for a two-part online class to learn a variety of techniques and important aspects of the writing process and how to make your personal story appeal to readers. Over the two workshops, we’ll look at how to structure your narrative and how to enhance it with figures of speech. We’ll have fun deconstructing and reconstructing sentences to give them more reader impact. We’ll explore designing great openings and conclusions that readers will enjoy.

Have your pen and notebook ready!

Register to attend and to receive the Zoom link. Kits with supplies and instructions will be provided.  Arrangements for pickup of kits will be made by email a week before Part 1.
