Feedback from Rae's workshops:

Excellent techniques for triggering creative life writing, memories, etc; info about caution with permissions needed for archival materials from state and commonwealth institutions.

Writing exercises were great so we could get into the zone of writing memoir; hearing all the details that are important to being a memoir writer/editor.

What a great workshop it was today. You gave everyone a voice and responded with great examples to help each individual.

Great tips about writing, great ideas for getting going.

Heaps of information, but most of all the knowledge that I can do it!

It doesn't matter where you start—great list of free sites.
