Our lives are full of experiences, adventures and events that shaped
who we are today. Unless we write about these events, they may be
forgottenor never known by our families, children, and loved ones.
In the Write Your Life Story, Two Pages at a Time, you explore carefully
selected life themes.
a semi-structured process developed by Dr. James Birren, where
This program is open to those who want to capture their life stories.
No writing experience is required, written work will not be edited or
critiqued, and there is no pressure to publish finished stories.
In this unique program, you write from the heart on themes carefully
selected for your class. The goal of the class is to encourage, support
and empower you to treasure and appreciate your life.
Led by a trained guided autobiography (GAB) instructor/guide,
you spend a bit of time doing some stimulating exercises to spark
creativity and self-learning. Then you talk about a commonly
experienced life theme such as turning points in your life, your
family influences, your health, and your work. There are several
questions designed to trigger your memory about your experience
of this theme.
During the workshop, you’ll write a two-page story about how you
experienced something connected to the selected theme.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Flora Brown and I’ll be your guide for this Write Your Life Story
Workshop. I’m a certified Guided Autobiography (GAB) instructor, a publishing coach, an author and
a Professor Emeritus from Fullerton College.
