Making Memoirs: Even YOU Can Write One!
Featuring local experienced author, speaker and memoirist, Linda Thomas.
Hosted by Writers of Warrensburg
With this workshop suited to beginners through authors with a manuscript seeking to publish, all will learn the steps and pitfalls of crafting a memorable memoir. Whether the subject of your memoir has led an ordinary or extraordinary life, Thomas has the knowledge to help you better share your story.
Linda K. Thomas, her husband, and their youngsters lived in Colombia, South America, for three years working with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Her memoir, Please, God, Don't Make Me Go: A Foot-Dragger's Memoir, captures both the joys and challenges of living in a remote locale targeted by Marxist guerrillas. Later, she and her husband, as empty-nesters, took an eight-year assignment in Africa. Her memoir, Grandma's Letters from Africa, covers her first four years working as a missionary journalist. Linda's work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and blog posts. Learn more at her blog, Spiritual Memoirs 101.
