Professional Obituary Writing Assistance

Obit Writing Help

THIS OBIT WRITING WORKSHOP guides you through the process of how to write your own obituary to use as a notification, online and/or in print, and at memorial/end-of-life celebratory gatherings. Even if you "never write," or feel awkward putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), I'm here to assure you that it's not as difficult as you might think. And because obituaries are generally relatively short, it's not like sweating over that 10-page essay you had to do in high school--which means you'll have much less stress over achieving your desired finished product.
