On Friday November 7, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library in downtown New Albany, Indiana, author Kristine Adams will present a memoir writing workshop titled "What's Your Story?" in the Library's Strassweg Auditorium. This program is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required; please call 812-949-3527 to register.
About the workshop, Adams writes, "I've been on the journey of writing my own memoir for some time now. On the way, I've discovered good and bad methods to approach the challenge. Memoir-as-genre is enjoying a prominent rise in publishing, quickening broad interest as well as prompting personal experimentation with the form. I'll share many resources that I've found worthwhile, and help you jumpstart your own process. In fact, I provide everything necessary to get underway – just bring your memories!... There is continuing proof that 'owning one's truth' brings out the best, for oneself and often for whole families. For those who have already begun their writing journey, I'll share options about how to move ahead with your work."
Kristine Adams has been a featured speaker at conferences, and her work has appeared in commercial, nonprofit and private publications. After beginning study in journalism and design, she changed her academic focus to psychology and behavior analysis. She has found outlets for her art and writing everywhere she has lived.
