Writing Your Holidays
Many find meaningful moments and opportunities for joy in the holiday season that is upon us. Those moments give us stories to share about our experiences, special traditions and
times with loved ones. Enjoy the satisfaction you will get from capturing these moments and sharing them with family and friends. For five weeks we will explore writing prompts to trigger
memories and discuss ways to develop those stories through use of different writing strategies. Each session will include time to write and share your stories with other participants in writing response groups to seek their reactions, comments and suggestions. The stories you develop will become keepsakes to share with others. Meets Thursdays November 10 - December 15. No class on November 24. Hybrid option available.
