The Preserve Your Past Podcast

Melissa Ann Kitchen

Leaving a legacy with your powerful personal stories
Storytelling is a universal practice we use to pass along our memories to future generations.  Whether or not you consider yourself a writer, everyone has a lifetime of stories to share and getting these down on paper assures that they will live on.
Join author, storyteller, and host Melissa Ann Kitchen as she welcomes guests from around the globe weekly to share the stories they’re leaving as their legacy. We pull back the curtains, get real and raw, going behind the scenes and discussing the story-telling processes they use. You’ll get plenty of tips and tools (and lots of inspiration) to help you write your own stories.
If you love the idea of preserving the past through powerful personal stories and want to hear how others have lived, loved, lost, and overcome all odds, then join us for The Preserve Your Past Podcast.
