  1. Hi, Brian. Since I am a secondary school teacher. I would not be able to attend any sessions during the school day. Therefore, I ask what other courses closely resemble the outcomes of 'Writing Your Memoirs et al.' There is a lot to consider and I want to be sure that it is the best starting point for me.
    Thank you. Jay Goman
