You’re invited to a very special weekend: From Memories to Memoir…The Naniboujou Create a Legacy Weekend

Do you have stories from your childhood itching to be told?  Did you come from a legacy of storytellers whose tales have disappeared and need to be preserved for the next generation?  Is there an event in your life begging to be set free?

It’s time to tell your story.

If you like to tell stories, if you long to preserve your heritage for your family, if you have a life story meant to be shared, then you can take your truth, and turn it into art.

This weekend is for you.  (and a loved one – because stories are meant to be shared!)

Join me as I teach you how to put your stories to paper, and craft them into a legacy for your family – and the world.  With step-by-step instruction, easy to implement activities, focused writing time and feedback, it’s a weekend to explore the past…and turn memories into memoir.

(For everyone from musers to accomplished memoirists wondering how to get their book in print.)
