Virtual Writing Workshop – “Writing Your Memories”: Gifts Given and Received


“Writing Your Memories”: Gifts Given and Received   

Saturdays, Oct. 15, Nov. 19 and Dec. 3, 2022
10 to 11:45 am

No experience necessary, just a notebook, pen and sense of curiosity and fun! 

Join us for this series of workshops that will help you unearth memories of gifts you’ve given and/or received—tangible and not so tangible–and the relationships connected to them. The first two workshops will include short, vibrant readings and prompts that will help you create your own original writing on the theme, and the third is a revision workshop in which you’ll receive constructive feedback on a piece of writing you submit in advance.  

Register for one, two, or all three workshops.
Part 1:Saturday, Oct. 15 
Part 2: Saturday, Nov. 19
Part 3: Saturday, Dec. 3

What Participants Have to Say:  

  • “The [short] readings were spot-on, serving as entry ways into lively discussions but also inspiring our own original writing. Brava!”
  • “I just loved the opportunity to read, write, and, if I wanted to, share. These workshops brought back memories that were tucked into the recess of my mind and deepened my interest in reflecting and writing about my culture.”
