Turn Your Life Story Into Fiction
Presenter: Vivian Grey

Wednesdays, April 18, 25, and May 2, 9, 16, 23, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Had a special adventure? Faced an unexpected challenge? Experienced a tragedy you could share with others? Have a humorous beat on life? Found the love of your life?

How many times have you thought “I should write a book.”

Vivian will help you take the ideas in your mind, draw on your memory, powers of observation, and imagination to create compelling fiction based on your life experience.

We will explore how to take your life story and create a story using a strong main character,

develop a dynamic plot, create effective dialogue and description, and offer an ending that your reader will accept and enjoy.

Insightful writing assignments will become drafts of the story in your mind. Questions are welcome. Each interactive session encourages discussion, includes handouts, and tips on how to make your writing memorable. Writers of all levels welcome.
