Guided Autobiography Workshops

In addition to helping students with personal statements for college applications, I recently became a certified Guided Autobiography (GAB) instructor. This means that I help adults of all ages write about their life in a way that is meaningful, inspiring, and fun.

Each GAB workshop features a new theme and a variety of writing prompts to spark the imagination and make writing easy. You will write one to two pages, read your story to the group, and listen as others read. Discussion focuses on ideas and discoveries, not on writing style or quality. Beginners welcome! Bring pen/paper or laptop.   

Workshops meets at the Community Center,  10911 Oak Street, Los Alamitos

Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to noon

January 10, February 6, March 6, April 3, May 1 ($32 per session)

Register by calling Los Alamitos Recreation & Community Services  at 562-430-1073  

Email me to be added to the mailing list for news on upcoming workshops, private GAB sessions, GAB give-aways and (for those who like to read memoirs but don’t want to write one!) my new Mommy & Memoir book club.


Thanks for sharing!
