In recent years, there has been an explosion in the popularity of memoir writing. Why? Stories connect us as a species, and no connection is stronger than with family. We want our family - especially future generations - to understand who we were, and we want to have an impact on them. For those who struggle with writing their memoirs or don't know how to start, they're in luck. June 3-5, 2016, Jay Speyerer will lead 'Stories of Your Days Memoir Writing Retreat' at Ligonier Camp & Conference Center in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. Get info at Mia Terra Retreats.

He has been a writer, a humorist, a speaker, a trainer and an educator for more than 30 years, successfully helping people achieve their goals in memoir writing. 'All of us are made up of our stories. We are each a living library of anecdotes, short stories, tall tales, half-truths, half-lies, jokes, facts, opinions, musings, and life lessons. Then you reach a point in your life when you realize it's time to turn your library into your legacy,' says Jay. Stories of Your Days Memoir Writing Retreat, in the beautiful Laurel Highland Mountains, promises to be a weekend to remember. In fun and easy steps, Jay will help participants awaken long lost memories, identify key moments of their lives, reveal who they are through their own words and get their stories on the page.
