Sara will share her experiences with her own autobiography and of other students during her 26 years of teaching this class. She will summarize what you will do in the eight week course and give a 5 minute experience of freeflow writing, allowing volunteers to read their writings.
Autobiography is a gift of memory we give ourselves, and a priceless heirloom that can be passed down to family members. Come on a guided journey into your past to recover the buried treasures of your memories and the tastes, sounds, feelings, images, and wisdom of your life. Five minute, whole-brain techniques, such as free-flow writing, mind mapping, drawings, imagery and collage, will dissolve any writing blocks so you can tell your story as vignettes, short stories, myths, poems, fables, or even as chapters in your novel.
