Gather, write, and publish personal, family, and community stories

Being part of a lifewriting group that meets regularly will help you to continue writing your memoirs and provide inspiration for stories. Don’t have a group that meets nearby? Form one of your own! You don’t have to be a writing “teacher” to facilitate this kind of writing group. This facilitator’s guide will help you with:

· Publicity (including sample press releases and posters).

· Ideas for meeting formats that work for groups large or small.

· Writing group guidelines.

· Sharing your stories.


To help you begin, detailed exercises are provided for your first six meetings. Those are followed by over 60 quick and easy lifewriting ideas and 35 reproducible handouts—more than enough for a year’s worth of weekly meetings!

The appendices include a bibliography, Internet resources, and sample handouts which you can use as they are or adapt for your group.


The print (hardcopy) version of Facilitating a Lifewriting Group is Easy includes copies of all handouts on an accompanying CD-ROM for you to customize for your group.
