Writing Your Life Stories for Your Family or for Publication

Our life stories are a precious legacy. Putting them in writing is a gift to all who know and love us—they can be treasured and enjoyed for generations to come. Facts bring us knowledge, but stories bring us wisdom.

If you are interested in writing family/personal life stories – those significant tales of adventure, transition, love, loss, and triumph, as well as the lovely everyday moments shared with loved ones from the past or the present, come learn specific tools and techniques to retrieve and record them.

Students will write a short piece each week. This class is structured for intermediate or advanced students who have completed at least one writing class. 12 hrs.

Instructor: Glenda C. Beall, published author and poet, experienced teacher and blogger. Owner/Director of Writers Circle Studio, Clay County Representative for NCWN West.

How I wish I had my parents' stories. And their parents...

Glenda Beall said...

EC, so many people wish that after their parents are gone. That is why I encourage everyone, any age, to find the time to listen to those stories and if possible, write them down or record them.
I had a blessing when my mother became ill and I was her major caregiver. We spent so many hours together and she told me wonderful things about her childhood and my father's family as well. Young people have no interest in the lives of their parents until the parents are gone.
So I tell my mature students to write the stories and one day they will be treasured.
So, EC, write your stories to leave for later generations.
