Marjory Lyons, Ph. D.
I have been a writer and educator all my life, starting in first grade when I “played school” with my little sister, writing the alphabet on the blue walls of our playroom –with our mother’s permission. I still write and teach; it is my passion.
After completing my doctoral degree in 1986, I moved to Fort Lauderdale to be with my family. Subsequently, I became a college professor in English and Doctoral Studies for twenty-two years. During that time, one of my colleagues asked me to write his memoir, and I established Telling Your Story, in 2001, to write and produce books of memoirs. I continue that work today.
Since retiring from college teaching, I have been giving book talks, teaching writing for adults, and holding memoir-writing workshops in Vermont, Maine, and Florida. My Florida Writers’ Workshop has been meeting for fifteen years, and since March 2020, has met weekly on zoom. In February 2021, I gave a book talk fund-raiser on zoom for All Saints Episcopal Church Women, Fort Lauderdale. In August 2021, I will hold my eighth summer workshop, expected to be held live, at the York Public Library in Maine.
About my own writing, in 2018, I wrote two books in the “Think you can’t write series” on the craft of writing with co-author, Beverly Johns. My memoir, “Good-bye, Volvo” about donating my husband’s car, won the Florida First Place Award in memoir writing by the National League of American Pen Women. Later the story was published by the Lighthouse Point Magazine, Florida. In early 2022, I will hold a reading of my play, “Revisiting To Kill a Mockingbird” performed live at various venues in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-249-1333
