Tell or Write Your Story--Lisa Saunders helps you get started

Don't wait anymore to record your life story or share family memories. Your friends and descendants want to know what you or your ancestors have lived through.

I hold memoir writing workshops to help you get started--right in class! Contact me for my next public workshop or arrange a private session. In addition, I may be available to interview and film you in your home or mutually agreeable spot in the southeastern Connecticut/western Rhode Island area. 

I am about to release a workbook complete with memory jogging questions, story structure tips, and advice on getting your story published as articles or books. My following workshop notes will help you get you started: How Write Your Memoir.

Christmas in CT & Shipwreck Found!

View it in your browser. Excerpt:

The old movie “Christmas in Connecticut” only portrays how inlanders celebrate the holiday. In Mystic, Santa comes by tugboat followed later by a lighted boat parade! This year, you'll even have a chance to win a sailing trip for four on a catamaran at the Mystic River Yacht Club’s Holiday Open House. You can warm yourself by their fire with hot cider when you take a break from the merriment during the Downtown Mystic Holiday Stroll.

Shipwreck finds keeps rolling in. My friend Melissa thinks she may have found the sunken ship of John Paul Jones (father of the U.S. Navy). If so, perhaps they will find his personal effects that went down with the ship! See: Legendary Revolutionary War ship may be found.

Need a new Christmas song? Nashville’s Connie Howard has moved to Connecticut and played her new songs on my TV show. One is a tender look at Connecticut, but what is Mrs. Claus going to say when Connie starts singing about Santa's boots?

Anchors aweigh!
