Writing Your Memoir, 3-5 pm begins Wed, Mar. 15 ends Mar. 29

March 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm



Writing a memoir doesn’t have to be scary. Here you’ll learn how to write the story of your life and have fun doing it. Bring pen and paper, because you’ll be writing. A seven-page guide with questions will help you gather your thoughts and organize your life history and memorable stories. You will be well on your way to finishing your memoir when you complete this class.

Before beginning to write full time, Betty worked as a journalist, interviewing everyone from U.S. presidents, astronauts who walked on the moon, Nobel Prize-winners, and polygamy runaways. She and has been a nationally-syndicated literary critic for more than 20 years. For the past 10 years, she has been a columnist and reviewer for Mystery Scene Magazine.
