Maitland Public Library patrons and I had a great time at my workshop, Let’s Write Your Memories, on June 15. Participants learned how to get started writing their memories and had the opportunity to draft recollections using timed writing prompts. It’s always amazing how many memories the prompts trigger, and workshop members left our time together with the beginnings of several new stories.
Writing Your Life hosted our first live webinar, The Art of Editing, on June 8. With more than forty lively participants, we considered it a great success and a good learning experience for all. If you missed the webinar, watch the replay here [LINK].
On June 22, we charted more new territory by holding the live, interactive, online workshop Edit Like an Expert. The workshop was like an in-person event but without any geographic constraints. As many of our clients are not in the Orlando area or are unable to attend an in-person class, the online format facilitated participation. Feedback from the Edit Like an Expert group was so positive that we’re going to do it again! Writing Your Life is already planning online workshops for later this year that we can’t wait to share with you.
