This is a beginner course to help you learn how to craft a meaningful story, whether it be in a professional setting to convey your values, to write a video script with heart, or craft a meaningful family history story. It is great if you have already done some family history writing, but this class assumes that you do not consider yourself already a pro. The students in this class are all professionals in one way or another, but may not have every charged for a job, or may not consider writing to be their strong suit. As a bonus in this course, I'll walk you through what it looks like to do professional feel work, even if you've never done anything like this before. This course will help you level up your skills so you can share more powerful stories in many different settings. 

We have established a professional mentoring group which you may choose to join following this class.

This 6-weeks will cover an introductory level to help you get started. There will be no official certification offered, but our current members have requested a certification, so we anticipate creating that in the future for our members.
