Join writer Terry Jordan and other like-minded people to share your life-stories and experiences. Depending on participant needs, Terry will use a mixture of instruction, inspired examples of autobiographical writing, and writing exercises to help you find your writing voice, considering such elements of craft as dialogue, character, and description in the process.

This workshop will be of help to writers at all stages of their development.
