ONLINE CLASS- Writing the Stories of Your Life

July 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - August 12, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
From cave wall hieroglyphics to the great literary works, we are hard-wired to describe and understand our lives and the times in which we live through stories. Some say, “I do not have a story.” Not true. Perhaps your story is about a difficult time in your life with lessons learned, maybe about a moment of triumph, how you adapted to the pandemic, or a small act that holds significant meaning. As a beginning writer who is interested in dipping your toe in w riting and sharing with others, this class will offer basic instructions on how to start, how to find inspiration and how to understand the power of stories to bring clarity to life’s moments and our choices. In addition to the basics of how to write, come prepared to share your writing with others and hear the stories of your classmates. Be prepared for the wonderful experience of forming a community of support with others.
