People often tell me they want to write about their lives or their mom’s or dad’s life.

But they don’t know how to go about it.

Here’s how:

I am an  author, journalist and biographer, and I am offering this six-week course, Writing the Story within. It begins Thursday, September 15, 6:30 to 8:30 PM, and runs through October 20.

You can enjoy this experience with me at Unity SF, 2222 Bush St., San Francisco.

You don’t necessarily have to want to write a book to join this class. But if you are burning to express your experiences in life or someone else’s, this course is a great way to launch such an endeavor.

I 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 start and finish.  Now is the time to get this valuable help.

The cost of this 6-week course is only $150 thanks to the generous Unity SF’s generous offer to provide a venue. You don’t have to be a member of UnitySF, JUST SIGN UP and come!

To sign up, write to or send your money to this address through 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.
