$370 – $490

Have you ever wanted to write about your life, or the life of a living loved one or ancestor? Join Josephine to learn how in this eight-week workshop series!

Participants will be guided in the writing of memoir, biography and autobiography, bringing their stories to life using creative writing techniques through fun exercises and free writing time.

Note: Each two-hour class comprises two sections: information, examples and exercises, all provided by Josephine; group discussion, free writing and pair-working, with guidance from Josephine.
