I will be presenting on the topic, Healing Through Writing Memoir.
Writing a memoir is about making a connection with readers, but also about healing. By crafting a memoir, we learn how our experiences have shaped us, and we share this wisdom with our readers. Memoir writing then becomes a healing experience that is a shared discovery. In this workshop, we will explore the practical process of writing memoir and how this can heal us, including specific techniques, writing exercises, and understanding the bigger picture and restorative effects that writing a memoir can have. There is not one way to write a memoir, or one way to heal. There are multiple paths. We will examine those differences and how you can find the one that is right for you.
