How often have you thought, “I have a story to tell, if only I had the (time, talent, ambition) to get it down”?
Well, now you can! In my colorful and engaging talk and Power Point presentation, I illustrate how to transform your memories into a page-turning and publishable memoir, voice recording, or hand-written journal.
As someone who has done hundreds author visits and workshops for children and adults, I offer an inspiring and entertaining program, one that will make your fingers itching to start writing, and give you the tools and knowledge to begin.
My hour-long presentation begins with reading an excerpt from my own memoir, An Incredible Talent
for Existing: A Writer’s Story, that will bring smiles, laughter and recognition (I believe it’s important to be able to laugh at yourself, especially your younger self!)
My Power Point program begins with my own vividly illustrated story, then moves on to
demonstrate how wrote my memoir, while also publishing children books. I then talk about the process of writing your own story – what to put in, what to leave out, and how to avoid common distractions.
I complete my program and Q&A — so bring your most difficult, unanswerable questions and I will do my best to answer them.
I also often an optional one-hour writing workshop, following the presentation.
Writing my memoir taught me everything I know about writing, and almost everything I know about life. It’s given me insight, comfort, laughter, and the joy (and hard work) of self-expression. I am excited to share these things with you.
