“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”
As a legacy writer you have a specific audience—descendants, who are naturally interested in your story. You simply need to write your (or your family’s) memories with specific detail and in your authentic voice.
This four-week legacy writing workshop for women will help you tell life stories. The workshop will begin Monday, July 12TH at 10 AM in Zoom video conference. The instructor, Kimberly Crum, will provide writing prompts, short readings and craft instruction so your stories will engage your descendants. You will learn how to use specific details and anecdotes. You will produce four drafts of short life stories. Ideally, this workshop will provide you the confidence, skills, and momentum to move forward.
Spirit of Sophia will host this workshop on an on-going basis. After each 4-week session, there will be a 2-3 week break and then the workshop will begin again. Registration through payment will be required prior to each 4-week session you participate in. Dates of new sessions will be posted on this webpage and in e-newsletters once known. Max Participants: 8 per session NOTE: The last group of women asked to extend their session an additional 2 weeks. If this preference is discussed – it will always be optional for each participant.
Kim will send out writing prompts, articles to read and the Zoom invite 5 to 6 days prior to each session.
