There are many ways to write about a life: A book-length project to be shared with children or grandchildren; first-person narratives about pivotal events or experiences; prose poems. In this workshop, we will share our life stories and receive encouragement and critique on them. In-class exercises and prompts will take writers in unexpected directions. No prior writing experience required. Limited to 10.
