Happy 2020 from Stories of You! 

2019 was a busy year for Stories of You, and we're looking for another busy one in 2020.

—The first two books in our The Messages That Matter   series of photo memoirs are now available in softcover editions on and e-books on the site here.

—Attention, residents of Vero Beach! Suzanne is doing her annual workshops for the Laura Riding Jackson Foundation on February 22 and 23, 2020. Taking place on Saturday, February 22 from 9:30 to 12:30, the writing workshop for adults is called "The Stories Our Stuff Tells" and focuses on writing memoir and life story from our possessions—new or old, valuable financially or having only sentimental meaning, bought or inherited, still in our possession or long gone. Register by clicking here at your earliest convenience—we sold out last year!

—Also for the Laura Riding Jackson Foundation, Suz's teen writing workshop is called "Writing from Your Cell Phone." Exploring the ways the pictures and information on our phones can spur creative writing, it is being held on Sunday, February 23 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Register for the teen session by clicking here.
