WRITING YOUR LIFE STORY: Ever wanted to share your life story with your family? Write down those notable memories and moments you don’t want to forget? Join writer/editor Sharon Verbeten for a workshop on writing memoir—what IS it? What isn’t it? How do you start? What do you include? All it takes is putting pen to paper to start—why not now?
EDITOR, WRITER, WORD WRANGLER
For more than 30 years, I've written about everything from custom caskets and wastewater plants to medical discoveries and special needs children. I've interviewed cancer survivors, children's book authors, funeral directors, antiques collectors and corporate CEOs. Throw anything at me, and I can research it and write about it in a compelling way. I’m a freelance writer and editorial director of my company All Write Creative Services and have presented on publishing and writing at Brown County Library and the Untitledtown Book Festival. I've also written two books for adults on Barbie and I've been regularly published in dozens of national trade and consumer magazines, including American Funeral Director, School Library Journal, Insight on Business, New England Antiques Journal and more. And marrying my loves of journalism and libraries, I’ve served as editor of Children and Libraries, the national publication of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), for the past 21 years. I’m the children’s services manager at the Manitowoc Public Library and I live in De Pere.
