Read a Life Story, Write a Life Story

Learn how to write your own life story as you read a published memoir in my upcoming class, Read a Life Story, Write a Life Story, in the Rollins College Lifelong Learning program.
In this class that runs Wednesdays, February 3, 10, 17, & 24 from 10:30am to noon on the Rollins main campus, we’ll examine the work of a well-known memoirist, discuss his story, and explore what the author is doing to create this compelling tale.We’ll then use the text as a way to learn writing techniques we can apply to our own life stories. The memoir for this class is My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South by Rick Bragg.
