From Memories to Memoir: An Introduction to Writing Memoir

Dr. Linda Sasser will show you how to create a keepsake journal for your family and friends in this 90 minute workshop.

Life does go by so fast; we live it, but don’t often take enough time to reflect on it. Writing memoir enables you to access memories, and then reflect and share how experiences, events, and people in your life impacted you and made you who you are today.  It has the added benefit of developing a legacy for your relatives and friends through which you can give them a look at the past and share your insights about life. In this workshop, you will learn what memoir is, how it differs from autobiography, the benefits of writing memoir, and its various formats and types. You will participate in simple exercises to begin creating your memoir and be inspired with ideas for continuing the journey.
