The Gift of Memoir: Telling The Times of Your Life
Our stories are a precious legacy. Writing them is a gift, not only to ourselves, but to those who love us—they'll be treasured for generations to come. Memoir is a popular genre for readers as well, should you be interested in sharing individual essays or creating a book-length work. You’ll learn and practice engaging tools and techniques to retrieve and record your adventures, loves, losses, successes, and more with ease and enjoyment, no matter where you are in the process.
