Writing Life Stories (B)

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Why write your own story? For yourself? For your family and friends, or simply to reflect upon your life? Memoir writing helps us present portraits of ourselves and the people in our lives, as we recreate in words the landscapes we walked. Writing enables us to reflect on our ever-changing personal, familial, or social circumstances. Members tell stories that range from joyful to heartbreaking. Yet, writing about one’s own life can be daunting. Where does one start? What should be included or left out? When you organize your thoughts for story writing, how do you approach it - chronologically or thematically? And what about style - poetry or prose? Brief anecdotes or chapter-long memoirs? Whether beginners or experienced writers, we help each other tackle some of these questions in our OLLI memoir writing group. Every other week one-half of the members present their work to a sounding board of like-minded “memoirists” and 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 want to try your hand at writing compelling stories of your life, this is your chance.
