A Note About Beth Finke Master Teachers

Chicago author Beth Finke’s book, Writing Out Loud, is her own account of how she became a memoir writing teacher for older adults. Recently, Beth developed a Master Class to support others in teaching her successful and unique approach. Skyline Village is fortunate to have Sharon Kramer to help us get our stories on paper, because, as Studs admonished, no one else will tell them for us.
