  • Writing your Memoir
    July 17, 2019  1:00 pm3:00 pm

    WRITE YOUR MEMOIR

    What’s Your Story? Writing a memoir doesn’t have to be scary. You’ll learn how to write the story of your life and have fun doing it. Bring pen and paper. Join instructor and author Carol Strazer on a journey of how to write your story (memoir) and learn about options on publishing your memoir. Friends tell you, “What a story, you’ve got to write it.” Somehow, it doesn’t happen. Don’t let your tale disappear in a fog of “if only” and “what if.” If fear is holding you back, learn a way to overcome barriers. Try this unique writing process to capture your story. Now you’ve written your story. Friends tell you, “Great. You should publish.” Where? How do you get published in a magazine?

    Instructor Carol Strazer is a prolific and successfully published author. Carol is the award-winning author of Mountain Smiles and Tears, a celebration of life in all of its messy glory. In this collection of stories and poems, the author shares some of her life’s deepest challenges: a life-threatening medical condition, confronting a rapist, caring for relatives with dementia, and rebounding from a job loss. Based on a little-known story of World War II, Carol wrote Barbed Wire and Daisies, a historical fiction novel. She has been published in Woman’s Day magazine, featured stories in various magazines, articles in local newspapers, and poems included in six anthologies. Recently, Strazer edited and published Mountain Reflections, A Collection of Red Feather Writers’ Stories & Poems. Carol Strazer co-leads Red Feather Writers in Colorado and Sun City West Writers in Arizona.
