Lifetime Learning Class- Writing Memoirs- Our Stories Matter

Date: Mar 1, 2023
Time: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Location: Burchette Room

WRITING MEMOIRS—OUR STORIES MATTER Writing them down may be one
of the most important things we do. In our own vernacular and style, we write
the narrative of the experiences and people of our lives so they can be visited
and revisited by ourselves and by those who follow us. Story is how we explain,
understand and reconcile our values, our ideas and how we live our lives.
Through story we expand our horizons as we learn about the lives and culture of
others. Our focus is on the stories we write at home, read them in our class, and
learn from each other. We occasionally share artifacts from our life stories and
write/talk about their importance to us. We will also touch on tips for writing
and publishing memoirs. Class members choose which of their stories will be
published in our semester book. Don’t let your stories be lost. Limit 15.
