Legacy Writing: Capturing Your Stories for Future Generations

MISAMadeline Island School of the Arts with Brenda Hudson

10/7 – 10/11, 2019

5-day retreat in a fabulous setting!

“I would highly recommend Legacy Writing to anyone! Brenda’s kind and empathetic style of teaching created an atmosphere in which everyone could relax, share and open up to each other.” — Mary

Have you always wanted to capture your life stories, but have never gotten around to it, or known where to begin? Perhaps you have started, but are stuck or overwhelmed. Maybe you want to pen your stories just for yourself, without any intention of sharing. If any of these scenarios ring true, this workshop is for you.

In Legacy Writing, you don’t have to write a book. Your journey begins with one story. From there, you’ll build your legacy one story at time, in a supportive, relaxed, and fun atmosphere.

To create your family legacy, you’ll pick and choose, as you like, from a number of story-based projects. Each project results in a different kind of family story—from a single memory to turning points in your life, family sayings to lessons learned, character profiles to blessings, to name a few. You’ll be surprised how quick and easy these projects are!

This workshop includes step-by-step instruction on multiple story projects, plenty of hands-on writing time, shared reading, and one-on-one coaching with Brenda. By the end of your stay, you will have a collection of completed stories and the know-how and encouragement to continue your legacy writing.

Two bonuses! As a special thank you, each participant will receive a handmade leather journal, crafted by Brenda. And, the first 8 to sign up will receive a free copy of Brenda’s forthcoming book Writing Your Family Legacy: Story by Story.

Come to MISA to create a family legacy and make sure your stories live on!

Here are some comments from Brenda’s MISA students:

What an enjoyable week for this “non-writer”! Brenda’s class gave me various tools and ideas that helped stimulate creativity and the mind. She is a knowledgeable, warm and caring instructor who was a delight to work with. Thanks Brenda for a great week in the adventures of writing! — Diane
