10 am – 4 pm
This workshop is designed for journal writers, people writing family stories, and creative writers who want to record their life stories—those significant tales of transition, adventure, loss, and triumph. We will use a series of writing exercises to retrieve and record the important people, places, and events in our lives. We will also discuss how, in telling our stories, we come to better understand the meaning they have for us.
