Every Life has a Story

Your life is a collection of rich stories that began at birth and continues through to this moment.

As Mark Twain said: "There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility. There is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy."

Capture your life through the art of writing your life stories and memoirs under the guidance of Jill Morris. Jill combines her experience as a teacher and school director with her training from the Birren Center for Autobiographical Studies to help people write their own stories and memoirs.

You do not need to know how to write or even want to become a writer, you only need the desire to want to write down the stories from the life you have lived so far. With over 30- years of professional experience, Jill has perfected her own teaching style which has often been referred to as: “wise, clear, and gentle guidance."
