San Fracisco, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
If you could tell just one small story that would capture your mother's character and keep her spirit alive for future generations, what would it be? Lynn Henriksens Keeping Spirits Alive Memoir Writing Workshop at St. Stephens Church. Belvedere, CA, February 2, 2013, is the place to learn to creatively tap memory and write the story only you can write. Writers and would-be writers will journey through emotional terrain to discover the deepest truths of intimate relationships and write a revealing story, a bio-vignette, that has the power to move people and change awareness.
Inviting readers and writers into a spirited and soulful world, this Keeping Spirits Alive workshop focuses on the TellTale Souls Method. This unique and creative technique is designed to trigger unexpected impressions and show daughters and sons how to move memory into memoir as they discover their mothers individuality and write to tell about it using all-powerful emotional memory as a catalyst.
Award-winning author Lynn Henriksen, an intuitive leader and writing coach of story salons and workshops, shows how tapping memory and learning to write with honesty about intimate, often trying, relationships leads to the most valuable form of writing, as well as a profound way to understand ones first connection with the world. The workshop is based on her guidebook, TellTale Souls Writing the Mother Memoir: How to Tap Memory and Write Your Story Capturing Character & Spirit.
Praise for the book from the acclaimed, bestselling author Talia Carner: Emotional memory is as universal as mothers. Lynn Henriksen helps writers and would-be writers explore the far reaches of their emotional memories along with the more tangible, sensory memories to create stories, essays or poetry. In her beautifully designed and organized how-to write a powerful memoir book, she artfully guides the writer through the dark mazes of the heart, illuminating them with the power of the imagination.
Lynn Cook Henriksen, aka The Story Woman, is the founder of TellTale Souls, an enterprise promoting writing memoir creatively through workshops, story salons, speaking presentations, and her new award-winning guidebook, "TellTale Souls Writing the Mother Memoir: How to Tap Memory and Write Your Story Capturing Character & Spirit." The book demystifies the writing process for people new to writing, and professional authors will encounter abundant food for thought and innovative techniques to get their creative juices flowing. As an intuitive leader, Henriksen discovered a profound way to keep spirits alive after witnessing Alzheimers disease ravage her mothers mind. She has helped hundreds of daughters and sons capture in brief memoirs the memories and feeling they never thought they could record.
