Gail Rudyk to Host Summer Memoir Writers Club

Gail Rudyk, a regular participant in my online workshops over the past few years who has self-published (some of!) her memoirs, is looking for interested individuals to join a weekly summer memoir writers club, starting June 25th, near Balm Beach on Georgian Bay. Details appeared recently in the Midland Free Press:

Memoir Writers Club

Gail Rudyk, a self-published memoir writer, is offering a free, weekly, informal get-together for aspiring memoir writers. They will meet at her cottage, near Tiny Beaches Road and Concession 13, every Wednesday morning from 10AM till noon, starting June 25th.


Do you want to share your stories with your children and grandchildren? Some people feel that if they haven’t survived a tsunami or some such tragedy, they shouldn’t be writing a memoir, but the truth is, everyone has a story to tell. You don’t want to leave your loved ones with unanswered questions. I wish I had asked my father about his childhood but it’s too late now. As I read somewhere this week, “When you’re gone, the library is closed.”

This is an opportunity to discover how to get started writing or to share some of your stories.

For more information e-mail me at or call on weekends 705-533-3852, and weekdays 905-881-0771.
