ONLINE: Writing the Stories of Your Life
“To Be a Person is to Have a Story to Tell,” Isak Denison
Join me on three Wednesdays, July 7th, 14th, and 21st, for “Writing the Stories of Your Life” via Zoom from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. From beginners to experienced writers, we are like the old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse as we share our writings and provide tips and support for each other in our writing journeys.
The world is and has always been a bewildering place. Humankind evolved to seek out one another through the unique gift of sharing our stories. As children, we found comfort – from the never-give-up spirit of “The Little Engine That Could,” to the restored belief in things we cannot see in “The Polar Express.” Today, in an age where our ties to one another are frayed and incivility is pervasive, we can turn to each other and embrace a growing movement to restore the art of story writing, telling and sharing to its rightful place in building connection and community.
Based on the experience of past classes, you will have the time of your life as you laugh, cry and stand in awe of the shared experiences of interesting lives and different perspectives. As one student observed, “Each participant is gently nudged … to explore one’s own place in the world through his or her writing. Whether one seeks to be a published author or simply aspires to write in a journal for enjoyment, Sylvia’s expertise and her zest for storytelling are sure to inspire.” (Meredith Plant)
Join me and get hooked on the power of stories to improve your life and those of others.
This class is offered in partnership with our friends at Good Foods Co-op and is appropriate for ALL LEVELS.
