This memoir group meeting will feature author Dorine Andrews who will discuss her newly published memoir, Jack's Gift, and other topics regarding creative writing.  Dorine is an expert facilitator and will foster discussion on topics such as:

-Start writing-no matter how old you are

-How to publish e-books

-Telling Our Stories for the next generation

The memoir affinity group encourages writers to "put it on paper". 

Have your children, grandchildren, or other young people in your life ever asked you what it was like when you were growing up? Have you ever thought about writing a memoir or creating an oral history? The Memoirs Affinity Group focuses on creating memoirs. Stories, as told by the people who lived them, reflect a unique piece of history and will be treasured by the storytellers, their families and maybe others for generations to come.

The Group meets  on Zoom and sometimes in person to bring together people who are interested in creating a memoir with people who have already done so.  The group  shares approaches to getting started, resources for creating memoirs and ways to stay motivated to create memoirs for themselves, family members and others.

Group meetings will include guest speakers and  group discussion on topics such as: getting started, obstacles to revealing memories, writing habits and staying motivated, and major themes and threads creating your story.   Come, share your story
