Think back on your journey from religion to reason. Was it easy? Of course not, and that's why you need to write about it. Writing a memoir is a growth experience for the writer--and is helpful to readers, too.

___ 3-hour workshop, $35. Non-refundable.
___ Registration closes Thursday, Sept. 27 at midnight.

Pop media are soggy with stories of faith, but you rarely hear the other side. Now, Reason Center will host a workshop on writing about your journey so others can share your eureka moments, which could help your readers find their own enlightenment.

This workshop will show how to bridge faith-based divides, how to dismantle biases, and how to manage the fear of revealing your personal details. By the end of this workshop, you will have a rough draft of a memoir, story, or personal essay, and a clear direction for its completion.

Of course, this is the same wise Joey who writes the "Ask Joey" relationship advice column for the Sacramento News & Review. She has spoken to AOF/SacFAN three times over the past three years. She's a talk show host with NewsRadio KFBK, the on-air Relationship Expert for Fox 40 News, and the author of the award-winning book, When Your Heart Breaks, It's Opening to Love. Originally from Belize, Joey launched the first-ever Belize Writers' Conference in 2018, featuring two New York literary agents as faculty.
