What do we do in the class?

Each week a theme is given and members write two pages to read during the next session. We write about our families, our school experiences, our friendships, our losses. We look for the power and energy in your writing and help you develop those qualities.

How Can Guided Autobiography Help You?

Guided Autobiography gives you goals and structure for your writing and a community of others who support you--listening to your story and sharing their own. The group supports and encourages you as you bring your stories to the written page.

A video by Lisa Smith-Youngs, OLLI at UC Davis about the life-giving impact of Guided Autobiography on the lives of those in her class.
