I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE HONOUR   Of Welcoming My Writing Mentor   DREW LAMM, CANADIAN AUTHOR AND MASTER TEACHER, TO VICTORIA     MINI MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOP   March 16th, 2014   1-3 p.m
* “Drew is deeply inspiring.  She helps people find the extraordinary in the ordinary.”   Kelly Coveny, Founder of Evolve The Conversation
I’ve had the great pleasure of experiencing one of Drew’s brilliant, heart-centred writing groups. She teaches in a way that leaves her students motivated and enthused to continue on their writing path with joy. Her feedback is specific, relevant and delivered with kindness. It’s the type of feedback that inspires confidence and brings you to the next level.
  I highly recommend this unique opportunity to meet, write and learn with Drew Lamm for an afternoon of memoir writing.
”A trillion moments, sights, scents and sounds, river past us every day, from noticing a blue baseball cap perched on a pos, to memories from long ago. We notice glimpses of life and then, unless we write them, they’re gone.   I believe that anything that catches on the riverbanks of your memory, holds meaning for you.  If you still see the piece of toast with one bite out of it on your daughter’s plate from breakfast, all the way back to a memory from long ago, it usually holds significance that you’ll discover as you write or from my response.”  Drew Lamm   You will receive a bouquet of prompts and an array of readings which take you back in time, jogging your memory and leading to short pieces you’ll treasure, as well as to a greater understanding of how each moment touched your life.  You’ll taste your life twice as memories open into meaning.   Drew teaches her To Taste Live Twice Writing Workshops in Connecticut, USA
    Date/Time  March 16th, 1-3pm Location: Foul Bay Cost: $60.00
