Writing Life Stories (A)

« back to classes page

Why write your memories? Writing our memoirs helps us document and reflect on our experiences, revisit old memories, and remember the people who have made a difference in our lives. Writing our memoirs allows us to reflect on and examine the past from our present perspective. Memoirs can be a collection of personal essays, a poem, or even auto-fiction. Members will write up to 700 words each week and bring copies for all study group members to take home, read, and offer personal comments. We will read aloud what we distribute the previous week and offer constructive feedback to each writer. Members might even choose to include photographs in their memoirs. We will also place the weekly memoirs and any essential reference material on Whether experienced writers or just beginning, we will help each other organize and clarify our writing, decide what to include and what to leave out, and determine what style to follow. Our study group is an excellent opportunity to write a life story or a memoir of one or more of life's chapters.
