I’m in Austin, TX for Story Circle Network’s Stories from the Heart VI, a national Women’s Memoir conference, beginning this (Friday) morning. I never miss the conference if I can help it, which offers dynamic workshops, as well as opportunities to make new friends and learn from other women writers. And the best part is that my oldest son and wife live in Austin, so it always feels like I’m coming home, even though I’ve never lived here.
It’s not going to be easy to choose which sessions to attend among many in the four tracks: Finding Our Voices, Nuts & Bolts, Putting Our hearts on Paper, and Storytelling Ways and Means.
This year, I’m privileged to offer my workshop, “Journal Writing for Memoir: Capturing the Past, Present, and Future,” on Sunday morning. In addition to the presentation, I’ll be giving away copies of my book, Week by Week: A Year’s Worth of Journaling Prompts & Meditations, as well as several other prizes. So if you’re at the conference, be sure to be in the ELC room from 11:00-12:30. You must be present to win!
Over the next few days, I’ll be posting updates and a pictures to give you a taste of the happenings here…
