This course returns!
Have you ever wanted to write your story?
Your life as you see it and as you live it. Or maybe the narrative of someone else’s life who has changed yours.
Author, journalist and biographer, Francine Brevetti is returning to reprise the six-week course, Writing the Story within. Beginning Thursday, September 15, 6:30 to 8:30 PM, and running through October 20, Francine will deliver her much praised course of May-June 2016.
“You don’t necessarily have to want to complete a book. But if you are burning to express your experiences in life or someone else’s, this course is a great way to launch such a project,” she says.
Francine will teach several techniques such as stimulating memory, mind mapping, structuring your story, how to interview other people and elements of publishing. And especially, how to start writing and keep writing.
“Many folks want to start their memoir or autobiography but find it difficult to finish,” she said. Now is the time to get this valuable help.
The cost of this 6-week course is $125 if you sign up before September 1. As of September 1, the price will be $150.
To sign up, write to Francine@francinebrevetti.com or send the fee thorough PayPal.
Here are just some of the testimonials from the participants in the May-June 2016 course.
(Based on a scale of 1 to 10) I gave Francine 10 primarily because her information and expertise are outstanding.
Francine has a wealth of information to share about the process, challenges in the art of memoir writing. Her course can be taken by writers just beginning their memoir or by writers well into their work. She is able to speak to the issues involved in producing and memoir from start to finish.

I was new to writing and the material turned out to be exactly what I needed to feel confident enough to move forward. Francine set a safe place to explore, share and learn. Her insistence on continuing to write and just get it down on paper was so helpful.

I am happy to give both Francine and the class my unreserved and wholehearted recommendation. The class gave me lots of practical tips that helped me improve my writing, and Francine’s gentle editorial hints were both encouraging and helpful. The class helped me find my voice, and motivated me to both write more and share my work with others. Take this class–you will not regret it!
