Adult Story Telling

Sharing our memories of important life events is part of what makes us human. Writing our stories can be a satisfying way of sharing those memories with family and friends. This class is for men and women who would like to write about their lives, or simply want to try creative writing. Classes will include in-class writing, interview skills, and use of games and activities to jump-start our memories. Students should bring a notebook or laptop to every class. 8 Weeks.  Instructor: Barbara Rosenblatt
