7 Keys to Writing Your Story

Meet Yourself on the Page & Uncover Buried Treasures

The great author Susan Cheever believes that Memoir is the novel of the 21st century, that it’s an amazing form we’ve barely begun to tap.


Writing our personal stories is a journey within that creates meaningful narratives out of our fragmented, everyday experiences. When we meet ourselves on the page, we begin to make sense of our lives and discover what deeply matters to us. Not only does the process transform the writer, but the stories also carry the potential to affect the hearts and minds of those they reach.

This event is designed to share the principles that will support you in exploring the life experiences that have shaped and defined you. Through guided writing you will give voice to what yearns to be expressed, those buried treasures held inside that are unique to you.

Karin Gutman, MFA, is a story coach who has been guiding writers for over 15 years towards discovering and writing their personal, life-based stories. Her clients have sold books to major publishers, including HarperCollins, Hay House and St. Martin’s Press. During her long tenure as co-executive producer of Spark Off Rose, the popular spoken word series in Los Angeles, she cultivated fresh, new voices and often worked with deeply personal material. A former story analyst for Creative Artists Agency and 20th Century Fox, she is a published author and has written and developed projects for Nickelodeon, the Jim Henson Company and National Geographic Kids. She has taught at Cal State Fullerton, UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and UCLA Arts and Healing, and currently offers workshops and one-on-one coaching to writers under her Spirit of Story banner. For more details, visit
