Chapters From the Farmhouse Journal...

During the first days of living in my rented farmhouse, I was sitting on the front porch with a friend who had come to help unpack.  We were taking a lunch break.  Over the chicken salad and fruit, I told her the remarkable story of how I had come to find this house, and of the other synchronicities contained in these pages.  Her response was: "Laura, you need to write this down.  Other people need to hear this; it will give encouragement and inspiration."

Join Laura Landers as she guides the class through the development and self-discovery of memoir writing. Laura currently resides in Northern Kentucky, in the farmhouse featured in her book, at the end of a gravel lane surrounded by fields and woods. She is an author with Women Writing 4(a) Change and a self-employed massage therapist.
