Want to write your life story or the biography of someone close to you?

This course will help you clarify your goals, start writing and keep writing and learn techniques of nonfiction.

So many times I’ve heard people say, “Oh why didn’t I write down mother’s memories? Or Pop’s stories?”

Don’t let this be your children’s complaint. Start writing now.

Of course, if you don’t have children, you may still want to write your memoir or a sketch of someone else who influenced your life. If you feel compelled to write, that’s the best reason.

Starting September 15, Thursday at 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM and running through October 20, author, journalist and biographer, Francine Brevetti will deliver her much praised course of May-June 2016.

It will take place at Unity SF, 2222 Bush St. near the corner of Fillmore St.

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 or send the fee to this address through PayPal.

 Here are just a couple of the testimonials she has received:

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 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!
