Guided Memoir writing classes


  • Classes meet in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area for 8 weeks, once a week for 2 1/2 hours. Classes can also be conducted via Skype worldwide. 
  • No writing experience necessary. Classes include creative writing tips and exercises, and inspirational priming questions on a different theme each week. 
  • ‚ÄčThemes include branching points, family dynamics, the role of money, your major life work, and others. Each week the themes get a bit deeper as a special level of trust and bonding builds between classmates. 
  • During the week participants write a 2 page story to read aloud to their small group at the next meeting. No life is boring, everyone has a story to tell. You'll be surprised what fascinating revelations you'll unearth about your life, and hear from others. 
  • Classmates are encouraged to give thoughtful and constructive feedback on one another's writing each week. 
  • Close friendships are developed and participants learn to understand and appreciate others and their life stories.
