Marjory LyonsMarjory D. Lyons, Ph. D., will conduct a writing workshop “Telling Your Story in Words and Pictures” on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 from 11 am. to 3 p.m. at ArtServe, 1350 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Participants should bring copies of original artifacts (photographs, certificates, articles, etc.), and writing paper or journals. Additional writing papers, pens and pencils in color will be supplied. Bring a brown bag lunch. Soft drinks will be provided.  The workshop is open to seasoned or beginning writers, with no age limit. Cost is $40.00 for members and $50.00 for non-members.

Attendees will learn how to organize their lives in decades and determine milestones in each decade.  As the title states, first, they will select an event or milestone–such as a wedding or graduation or special accomplishment.  Second, they will write a description of that event. And third, they will write in detail about an artifact—a photograph, certificate, newspaper article, or other item answering questions, such as, who was there? what were the circumstances of the event? where did the event take place?  And, especially, what did that event mean to you? The intended outcome is a chapter of a memoir in their own words and pictures.

Lyons has held writing workshops in Florida and New England for nine years.  A member of the National League of American Pen Women and past president of the Writers’ Network, she founded her company, Telling Your Story, Inc. in 2001. She has been on the faculty of the Fischler School of Education at Nova Southeastern University since 1990.
