Writing Life Stories Group A

ID : 531   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Why write our own stories? Perhaps your family has been after you to tell your own life story. Perhaps you want to capture enduring portraits of the people in your life, or to reflect on where you’ve been and what you’ve done. Yet, writing about one’s own life can be daunting. Where does one start? What should be included or left out? How should you organize your thoughts? Chronologically? Thematically? What about style? Poetry or prose? Brief anecdotes or chapter-long memoirs? Whether beginners or experienced writers, we can help each other tackle some of these questions in our OLLI memoir writing groups. 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. A list of reference textbooks, memoirs, and writer’s online resources
will be provided. We will have three autonomous memoir-writing groups (limit of twelve each) to allow everyone adequate time for presentation and feedback. If you ever wished to try your hand at writing compelling, real-life stories, this is your chance. Note: No class on 05/28/18
