Writing your life —two pages at a time—using universal themes such as family, career and work, and spirituality. Priming questions will help evoke memories of events and people. Writing and sharing life stories with others is an enjoyable way to gain a growing appreciation of your life and the lives of others, as well as put the past into perspective. Narrative storytelling is a wonderful way to learn about yourself, and has been shown to enhance the writer’s sense of meaning. This introductory class will include creative exercises, writing tips, writing, and sharing of stories. All levels of writing experience (from no experience to expert) are welcome and encouraged to join.
