How to Write a Memoir: Telling Your Story
As we age, many of us are interested in gathering stories from our lives and sharing them with our families, especially our children and grandchildren. We want to try and make sense of our lives and create a record describing the events we experienced and how we dealt with our struggles, setbacks, and successes. What are the lessons and values that we want to pass on? What did we find meaningful? What was important to us? What is our legacy?
This interactive workshop, led by Chris Palmer, who has written three memoirs, is for BMAV members who want to create a memoir that values the struggles in their lives, makes sense of them, and explores their meaning.
The focus will be practical and designed to help participants make rapid progress. We will discuss the reasons for writing a memoir, how to plan and structure it, how to tell compelling stories, how to find your voice, and how to deal with sensitive issues that might hurt other family members.
No RSVP is necessary to attend this session on Zoom.
