Life Stories

Why write your story?

  • To leave a legacy for family, friends, and your community
  • To engage in a creative process that can open the way for personal growth
  • To gain insight into the themes of your life
  • To witness and celebrate the power of sharing our stories

In our Life Stories workshops, under the guidance of a professional writing instructor, we explore and reflect on different themes that have been influential in shaping our lives. By understanding the past, we can give new meaning to our present.

Writing your life story and sharing with others can be a transformative experience.

Recall, organize, write, and share

Guided writing exercises help you remember experiences from your life that you can then organize into an engaging narrative to share with others.

Central themes include:

  • Branching Points
  • Family History
  • Role of Money
  • One’s Life Work
  • Health & Body
  • Identity
  • Death
  • Spiritual Life & Values
  • Goals & Aspirations

Life Stories workshops are held at Project Write Now’s studio in Red Bank. We can also customize programs for your group or organization.
