Legacy Writing Workshop

with Kimberly Crum

The Legacy or Memoir Workshop will resume in winter of 2022/23. Click here to learn about our “NEW” Memoir Workshop with Kim.

“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 five-week legacy writing workshop for women will help you tell life stories. 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 five drafts of short life stories.  Ideally, this workshop will provide you the confidence, skills, and momentum to move forward. 

Spirit of Sophia plans to host this and/or the Memoir Workshop on a regular basis. Registration through payment will be required prior to each 5-week session you participate in. Dates of new sessions will be posted on this webpage and in e-newsletters once known.

Kim will send out writing prompts, articles to read and the Zoom invite 5 to 6 days prior to each week of the session.
