Memoir Writing Course


Can you trace your family tree back hundreds of years, with a delightful array of colorful or even infamous characters perched on every branch? Do you want to preserve the lives and loves of your ancestors so their stories can be passed down to future generations and shared with the world? Or perhaps you have your own story to tell and you wish to engage in the therapeutic and liberating task of penning your memoirs? If this is your goal, our memoir and family history course is perfectly suited to you.

Our easy-to-follow course makes it a pleasure to re-discover your personal history or your family’s past. You’ll write a treasured legacy for yourself, your children, and future generations of your family. We’ll show you how to effectively research and organize information. We’ll help you to decide what’s important and what can be left out. And, most importantly, you’ll learn how to structure an engaging and captivating story that will fascinate both your loved ones and general readers.

Student Testimonial

“Thank you for my diploma of Family History. At age seventy-two and an immigrant, I proudly hang it on my wall. I enjoyed my course and the school handled it very professionally. My special thanks go to Mr. Michael Mirolla, an exceptional tutor and human being, who had had the patience to read and correct my manuscript. He professionally pointed out my writing faults and praised me for my merits. He is an excellent tutor and deserves recognition.”
