What I wouldn’t give to have a letter or diary or a written story from one of my ancestral grandmothers. I have so many questions for them.

In my quest to prevent future generations from wondering about what the heck was happening in their people’s lives during their time on earth, I developed The Gentle, Wild Art of Memoir Writing courses. We write life stories —  clear, strong, and true — in once-a-week classes in 6-week sessions.

The Gentle, Wild Art of Memoir Writing Workshops — you’ve lived to tell, and I suggest that we get your stories onto paper. This course was first presented in 2015 for the Free Library of Philadelphia. Since then, it continues in seasonal sessions. Classes have been held at an art center, a charming cafe, a private home, and now over the ZOOM platform. We are writing together in 5 states across the country now, over the Zoom platform. If you have WiFi access, I hope you will join us.
