Jump Start Your Memoir: Write it From the Heart 

May 04 - 06, 2018 Begins in 1 week
with Nancy Slonim Aronie

This writing workshop is about reclaiming your voice. It’s about using your own language, your own rhythms, and writing your own story. It’s about honoring your own instincts, not trying to sound like a “Writer” or trying to get an A from the teacher. It’s for anyone who wants to write, has written, or wants a jump-start on the road to tapping into his or her power source of creativity. Jump-start your memoir, your poetry collection, or your songbook. Nancy Slonim Aronie is a midwife for words that want to come out.
