Teleseminar Course Title:    Playing Your Part on the World Stage: How Your Memoir Intersects with History

Take a gallop back in time, to the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s with author, ghostwriter and historian Kim Pearson, and discover how you participated in and contributed to the events and trends of those times. Yes, if you were 7 or 77, what you did, thought, felt, and witnessed mattered – to history! Anchor your memoir in time with historical context, adding depth and color to help your future readers understand “where you’re coming from.”

Two Separate 4-session Workshop Teleseminar Series
Sign up for ONE or BOTH of the Teleseminar Series!

Teleseminar Series 1: May 13, 20, 27, and June 3

Teleseminar Series 2: June 10, 17, 24, and July 1
Time: 4 PM PST  | 5 PM MST | 6 PM CST | 7 PM EST

Kim has divided history up into categories and each week we’ll explore the following in our 4 sessions:

  • Economics & Politics (money and power colors everything)
  • The Social Fabric (race, gender, morality – so much has changed)
  • International Scene (we’re all in this together)
  • Technology & Science (remember BEFORE the internet?)

What you will learn and receive from this 4-week teleseminar includes:

  • The four vital reasons for writing and sharing your stories
  • Kim’s simple and fun 5-step system that helps you use historical facts to give depth and context to your memoir
  • Handouts (PDF) of extensive detailed timelines in each category (excerpts from Kim’s book Making History)
  • Handouts (PDF) containing writing exercises — penetrating questions and suggested topics designed to get you thinking and remembering (excerpts from Kim’s book Making History). And time to do some of these exercises!
  • Kim’s “Write to Remember Unrules” that jump start your writing and your memory
  • Time to share your stories and listen to others share theirs.

Explore the many, many stories of our fascinating pasts – and how we ALL make up history.

We are thrilled to have Kim Pearson joining us to present this very popular course!  Kim is the owner of Primary Sources, a writing service helping others become authors of polished and compelling books, blogs and articles. Her books include: Making History: How to Remember, Record, Interpret and Share the Events of Your Life; You Can Be an Author, Even If You’re Not a Writer; Dog Park Diary: The Social Rounds of Goody Beagle; and Eating Mythos Soup. In addition, she has ghostwritten more than 30 non-fiction books and memoirs, which tell the stories of a wide variety of people and cover a broad range of topics. Kim has been teaching highly-regarded workshops and teleclasses on writing and history for the past ten years.

We hope you are able to join us for one or both of the Workshop Teleseminar Series that begins next Thursday, May 13, 2010!
