BOOK SIGNINGS! READINGS! SPECIAL EVENTS & MEMOIR WRITING SESSIONS!

A member of VIGA’S MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOPS has this to say about them:

“Anyone who is looking for time for themselves away from stressful situations should enroll in Viga Boland program at Turner Park called Memoir Writing. Not only does this program focus on writing, but because we delve into our pasts it is very therapeutic. So if you are holding pain inside this is your opportunity to release it and also learn writing strategies. It’s a very powerful program. Please call Turner Park library for dates and times or go to www.vigaboland.com. Also read No Tears For My Father by Viga.”

    Dear Viga, I have an adult nephew who experienced this and has never had help with it. Can you advise as to how he could get help to put it all down
    on paper as you said in your interview that a victim should do.
