OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University Continuing Education will present “How to Tell Your Story: A Workshop on Writing and Publishing” on March 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Weber State University Davis.

The workshop is intended to help aspiring writers, story tellers and journal keepers in our community learn how to tell their stories.

Workshop attendees will learn tips and tricks from local professional authors for getting their work published. Stories are the legacy one generation leaves to the next. Participants will learn how to craft favorite family stories into a narrative that’s worthy of publishing and discover the best ways to position themselves for success in the publishing world.

The workshop includes four sessions: Biography and Autobiography, The Narrative Essay, The Creative Journal, and How to Publish. Sessions will demonstrate how telling a story begins, writing techniques that make them come alive, and how to get a story in print.
