Join two award winning memoir writers – Debbie Augenthaler (You are Not Alone) & Joel ben Izzy (The Beggar King and the Secret of Happiness) …and Laura Lentz, author of STORYquest, the Writer, the Hero, the Journey.
In this writing workshop, we will explore the moment in our lives where everything changed. Sometimes our changes are forced upon us, and other times they are whispering in our ear quietly, we just have to shut out the noise of the world to hear.
Debbie & Joel will be discussing writing their memoirs, how death and illness turned them into the people they are today. Laura Lentz will conduct a writing exercise from her STORYquest workbook, publishing the day of writing workshop.
Breakout groups will be formed after the writing so writers can read back in small intimate groups. Trained facilitators are pastors, professors, authors and other workshop leaders.
Writers will have the option of their writing appearing in an ongoing Facebook group for writers writing memoirs through the many stages of a life journey, in what Joseph Campbell famously referred to as The Hero’s Journey.
