Write Your Story: How to Write and Publish a Memoir

Everyone has a story to tell. If you feel compelled to write about your life or feel drawn to explore memories on the page, this workshop will provide tools to get started and keep going with a regular writing practice. Ruth will share writing exercises, techniques, and information about the publishing process. Her memoir, “Those Who Remain: Remembrance and Reunion After War” was published in May 2014. Copies of her book will be available for purchase. Writers (or potential writers) of all levels are welcome. Bring paper and pen.
