Welcome to the Center for Autobiographic Studies (CAS) website. CAS is a not-for-profit educational organization since 1997, dedicated to promoting the knowledge, appreciation, creation and preservation of autobiographic works. These works may be written for self-understanding, for preserving family and cultural history, or for pooling wisdom gained from diverse individuals’ life experiences.

Here, you will find updates about the most current happenings at CAS and you will find helpful information about writing and/or publishing your autobiographic writing. We thank you for your interest and welcome your comments and participation.

I asked Wendy Judith Cutler and Ahava Shiva to do a guest blog about how they came collectively to write their recently published book Writing Alone Together. Used in conjunction with my book THE NEW DIARY, that is written for journaling alone, WRITING ALONE TOGETHER provides superb information on the benefits and best practices for journaling in a group, sharing and growing in ways beyond private diary writing.
