The Yin and Yang of Memoir Writing: 

a mini-memoir workshop

with author/activist

Jan Phillips

**Please note all times are listed in EST**  

Writing a memoir is a full bodied experience. It includes the deep interior (yin) work of harvesting your life experience to unearth the jewels hidden in your caverns of darkness. It also brings up questions regarding the outer (yang)

  • aspects of the creative enterprise:
  • do you need an agent?
  • how do you find a publisher?
  • should you self publish?
  • who is your audience?
  • where should you start?

This hands on experience will answer the questions you have about writing your memoir and start you on the path.

Jan Phillips is a writer, teacher, photographer and activist. She has made a one-woman peace pilgrimage around the world, travelled across country as a photojournalist, co-founded Syracuse Cultural Workers (publishers of artwork for peace and justice), and founded Livingkindness Foundation which has built a computerized learning center in a Nigerian village. Jan is the author of 10 award-winning books and publisher of the photo-memoir Born Gay. Her books include No Ordinary Time, Finding the On-Ramp to Your Spiritual Path, The Art of Original Thinking-The Making of a Thought Leader, Divining the Body, Marry Your Muse, God is at Eye Level, Making Peace, and A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Mind.
