Author Lynette Davis To Offer Free Writing Workshop

When it comes to writing a book, research indicates that less than 2 percent of people actually begin writing their book, let alone finish it. Local educator, freelance editor, and author Lynette Davis wants to change that.

SAN BERNARDINO, CA (APRIL 5, 2018) On Saturday, April 21, 2018 Lynette Davis will present It’s Time to Tell Your Story, a FREE 90-minute interactive workshop to help individuals who desire to tell their (nonfiction) stories.

This free workshop will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Kellogg Room B of the Norman Feldheym Central Library, located at 555 West 6th Street, San Bernardino. There will be light refreshments, a drawing for Amazon and Starbuck gift cards, and Davis will give away two copies of her memoir, Even Rain Is Just Water.  

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story on the inside of you.  – MAYA ANGELOU

Many people have a desire to write a book—tell their story, but they don’t know how or where to start. The primary goal of the presentation is to help individuals, who want to tell their story, to begin writing.

“Memoir,” explains Davis “is autobiographical but it is not an autobiography. There’s a distinct difference between memoir and autobiography.” The workshop will discuss the differences between memoir and autobiography, strategies for retrieving memories, the two most important elements of memoir, the actual process of writing, and includes a Q&A session.
