Writing Your Story



Writing your stories like NO ONE else can do it. It’s time to get your story down on paper as only you can tell it. Your story is unique whether you want to publish or not, whether you are writing for someone else to read or not. You may write about portions of your life, such as your childhood, teen years, your love story, career, hobby, travel, or what makes you wake up and get out of bed in the morning. Choose writing memoir as a narrative or in short pieces, mixed with poetry, or not.

You will be guided in the best way to make it easier for you. You don’t need a degree, you don’t need to be a spelling ace and you don’t need to be an English teacher. You do need to want to tell your story. This is a workshop. You will leave at the end of the day with a pathway to recover your memories, emotions, and images in words. Get to know yourself by writing it out. Be amazed at the person you are and the life you have lived.

I attended Arlene Bice’s “Writing Your Memoir” workshop last year which became one of the highlights of my year. Arlene made the whole event comfortable and fun by putting everyone at ease as to their writing experience — some there were experienced writers, and some were not. She stressed that there is not a right or wrong way to write—but only your way—which helped put my mind at ease. For me, this class was an insight into how my memories hold meaning in my life; writing about those memories has shown me how I have become who I am. ~ Ellie Newbauer
