Give YourSelf Permission Writers Workshop

The Give YourSelf Permission to Write and Share Your Personal Story Workshop is designed to help you identify pivotal points in your life and turn them into a compelling narrative using effective storytelling and writing techniques. You’ll participate in several workshop modules. First, Priya will examine why people share their personal stories and then discuss the personal and psychological benefits of doing so.

Through examination of traditional storytelling structures and stimulating writing assignments, Lynn will help you find your own voice to create short writing about yourself. You’ll also learn tips and techniques used by screenwriters and novelists to help you write in a way that will grab the attention of readers and make them want to learn more.

Do you have a story about following your dream, overcoming adversity or achieving success? Or perhaps a story of personal growth that you want to share with others? Then come join us on this e-course.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll leave with a good start on your memoir or personal essay, and all attendees will have the opportunity to submit their stories for possible publication in Give YourSelf Permission Magazine or Anthology.

The next issue of the magazine has been put on hold but we are actively seeking submissions for the next book. Submission guidelines are virtually same and all information in this video is relevant to both magazine, anthology and future collection titles.
