Writing Life Stories (B)

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Why write our own stories? Memoir writing may help us capture enduring portraits of the people in our lives, recreate with words the landscapes we once walked, and take the time to reflect on our ever-changing personal, familial, or social circumstances. Yet, writing about one’s own life can be daunting. Where does one start? What should be included or left out? How should one organize one's thoughts - chronologically or thematically? What about style - poetry or prose? Brief anecdotes or chapter-long memoirs? Whether beginners or experienced writers, we will help each other tackle some of these questions in our OLLI memoir writing group. Every week we will have an opportunity to present our work to a sounding board of like-minded “memoirists” and to give and receive helpful feedback. We will also hone our skills by drawing from a wide variety of resources dealing with the genre. If you ever wished to try your hand at writing compelling, real-life stories, this is your chance.
