Don’t let your life story get away! Have you been meaning to write some of your life stories and experiences? This workshop will get you started writing your stories. No previous writing experience is necessary. Each workshop session is designed to help evoke memories of events, family, and common threads in the fabric of your life. We will share our writing in a small group. You will discover surprising insights as you write from the heart, and in that process you will create lasting stories for your family--an ideal way to pass along the valuable stories and lessons of your life.
Bea Epstein is a writer, teacher, storyteller and psychotherapist. She is a Certified Life Story Writing teacher. Many of Bea’s life stories have appeared in literary journals. Her book, “Crossing the Bridge” was published in 2015. It is a collection of memoir stories of her childhood experiences as the first generation daughter of immigrants from Eastern Europe. Bea’s strong belief is that when we tell our stories we see the larger meanings in our lives and connect with the generations that came before us. She is eager to share her knowledge and passion for helping people of all ages preserve their life stories.
