francine picI am an author, ghostwriter and public speaker. I give workshops as the one below on how to write one’s life story.
More and more people are writing memoirs and more publishers are producing them. This is where I come in.

I am launching a six-week course at Unity, 2222 Bush St. near Fillmore Street. The dates are Thursdays, May 5, May 12, May 19 (not May 26), June 2, June 9, and June 16. Classes will last from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

The cost is $125, payable to me, Francine Brevetti. I can be contacted at Francine@FrancineBrevetti.com. 415 397 7830.

The course focuses on focusing – getting a clear idea of the manuscript you want to write, learning how to write it and keep writing it. I provide wisdom on how to get through challenges that memoirs and autobiographies or any nonfiction work can present.

This course will lead participants to the satisfaction of knowing they can do this.

Such was my week February 2-February 9, 2013 at Rancho La Puerta.

 

The bright faces of my students, eager, committed, confused, leaning forward to hear.

The flash of achievement when one said she understood something at last – my achievement as well as hers.

The nervousness of reading her scene or  anecdote  aloud in class. You can just see her thinking: “is this okay? Am I okay?”

What did she say, they ask each other. Furiously scribbling to get that reference or website down just as I said.

And all of this endeavor in the environs of a resort both pristine and sumptuous.

Stimulating, relaxing, paradise.
