My mini-manifesto on writing & working with others:

"I don't want to
help you,
heal you, or
hallelujah you.
I just want

(you) (and me)

to write,
to connect,
to engage."

Next Workshop: May 2, 2015

A live, virtual workshop to help you find and write the stories of your life. 

If I could give you one thing to help you tell the stories of your life, it would be the unique step-by-step process that I share in this class.

One-Moment Memoirs (OMM) is a series of writing exercises designed to help you discover and write the stories of your life. This hands-on workshop will help you take a relaxed, yet focused, approach to telling life's big and small stories in bite-sized pieces. 

You can join the workshop from anywhere in the world. Can't make it live? No worries. All registrants get a recording of the class.
