Mentoring Programs, Memoir Writing Classes & Workshops 

 So you want to tell your story?  I have taught in the creative arts for over 35 years. For the last 15 years, I have helped others write their stories in memoir classes, workshops, organizations, groups, and one-on-one sessions. All you have to do is show up with a journal or notebook and a fast writing pen!

 I am available for book groups, writers’ conferences, performing art centers, library events, women’s and men’s associations, spirituality groups, religious organizations and associations who want to offer their members an opportunity to write those memories that haunt us. If there is a presentation you would like to discuss, contact me through my Contact Form. Look forward to hearing from you.
