Writing Your Life

Calendar Date:
Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 10:30am

In this memoir writing workshop, participants use memory prompts to detail: family history, what is important in their lives, how they want to be remembered, and what is their story during various monuments in the lives of their children/family. We will reflect on milestones, histories, family’s lives, travel, birth, children, and values, and walk away with inspiration to pen their own stories. We all have a story to tell. Come learn how to write your story. No registration required.
