To highlight the importance of sharing memories throughout all stages of our lives, Home Instead has just launched “Thanks for the Memories” – a Facebook contest to encourage people to share their special memories online, with the potential of winning a personalized session with memoir-writing expert and published author Marcia Rosen. Rosen, the author of My Memoir Workbook, is a literary agent for self-published authors and has been an advisor and consultant to writers of memoirs, fiction and non-fiction books for the past fifteen years, working with authors on concept development, structure and editing.
Four winners of the “Thanks for the Memories” Facebook contest will receive a copy of My Memoir Workbook, which will provide them with a step-by-step guide to writing their life story. In addition, the entry with the most votes will also receive a personalized, 30 minute “Life Writing” phone session with Rosen – where she will help in concept development and provide her insight into how to turn the vision of writing a memoir into a reality.
The Home Instead Senior Care “Thanks for the Memories” Contest is open to all residents over the age of 18 in the Greater Albuquerque Region. Those interested in submitting their memory for consideration are being asked to submit a picture and thoughtful caption describing the story behind the photo of their most cherished memory through Home Instead Senior Care’s Facebook Fan page. Further information is available online at www.homeinstead.com/
The contest officially begins on November 5th 2012, with entries being accepted until December 30th. Voting is open until January 5th 2013. The winning memories will be determined by the photos that receive the most votes and will be selected by January 15th 2013.
