The LifeStory Institute
with Charley and June Kempthorne
The writer's workshop for memoirists, autobiographers and family historians.
LifeStory was founded in 1991 as a how-to newsletter/magazine and also as an over-the-road workshop
travelling North America teaching and coaching new and longtime writers of all ages how to write about
their lives and the lives of their ancestors.  The premise is that everyone can, and probably should, write
their life story to pass on to their family,friends,and others interested, including and perhaps especially,  
professional historians.

New LifeStory Journalong starts Sunday, April 1,2018!

28 days to writing more or less happily for the rest of your life!  

 along with Charley & June  every day for the next 28 days and you will form the habit of journaling every day, one day at a  
time.  In one year if you write 500 words a day you will write 182,500 words--the length of three books.  If you write 250 words a
day, you will write 91,250 words, the length of one long book.  Choose which you want to do, 500 or 250, then start in and stick to
it.  If you have any trouble and need some help/support, please call me at 785-564-1118.  Leave a message and I will call you
back the same day.  This is important if you consider writing your personal and family history important to your descendants.
[Please note: June journals with her own drawings as well as words.  Let a hundred flowers bloom!]
