MELBOURNE—The Space Coast Writers’ Guild will hold a four-session class over two weeks in June to assist adults to write their life’s story.

Linda Jump, author of From Memories to Memoir Using the Jump Start Method, will lead the class at the Fountains of Melbourne at 4451 Stack Blvd. Classes are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays on June 20, 22, 27 and 29 in the Community Room. Cost is $30 for all classes. Classes are planned to be sequential, with writing assignments to be read and shared each class. Individual classes are $8 each.

“What would you give to have the written stories of your great-grandparents? Leave a legacy for your descendants that are more golden than any other heirloom. Students will begin their memoir and learn the tools and skills to keep writing,” Jump said. Jump is a former reporter and photographer for Florida Today newspaper and the author of three published books and numerous magazine articles. She co-facilitates an ongoing Writing Your Life class through the Shepherd’s Center of South Brevard.

Attendees will learn how to start their memoir, will write their six-word memoir and receive topics and questions to continue their writing. For information, call Jump at 321-952-7422.
