Guided Autobiography (GAB) is a research based writing method developed by Dr. James Birren, who was considered by many to be the father of modern gerontology. Dr. Birren studied and perfected this method over the course of 40 years as a way to help people document their life stories.
How it works:
- The 6-8 week writing course meets via zoom for 2 hour, facilitated, weekly, online workshops that are designed to help you find your creative muse and hone your writing skills.
- Between classes, you will write a two-page story, inspired by a list of prompts and our weekly discussion.
- Each week you will share what you’ve written in an encouraging, confidential and appreciative environment.
These courses are designed to guide, support, and motivate students toward writing their most authentic and important stories by offering inspiration, time, on-going encouragement, accountability and peer feedback.
