Life & Family History Writing Workshop


Dates: January 30 - April 10, 2017 (10 sessions)

Time: 1:00 - 3:15 p.m.

Venue: AFHS Library, 712 - 16 Avenue NW (map)


Featured Speaker: Michele Buhler


Our own Chinook editor, Michele Buhler, will be your instructor. Michele is a former Social Worker who stumbled into helping people write their life stories when she “discovered” her mother-in-law’s fabulous stories and wrote them down. That was almost ten years and many books ago!



Cost: $200 for non-members, $170 for AFHS members

Details: Enroll early - 12 people maximum! Michele will help you generate ideas and create a collection of stories that you can share with your loved ones. You will listen to and encourage group members. Don't feel intimidated if you think you are not a writer - this is a memories class, not an English class, so "creative" spelling, grammar and puncutation are encouraged!
