    Life Writing

    With Leatha Kendrick. This class series will make you write — in class and outside. We will take our inspiration from the best pieces of memoir we can find, read, and share — as well as from each other’s writing. We will focus on what makes a memoir satisfying and engaging, and on how each of us can write better prose. Limit: 12 participants. [ALL LEVELS]

    Writing Your Family History

    With Susan Owen. What will your family know about you and yours a century from now? Paper records are fast disappearing, and today’s electronic records may well be unavailable or obsolete (remember floppy disks; cassette tapes; or that web address or Facebook page that suddenly disappeared?). This class will explore what future generations may want to know about you and those you love, and how you can start now to build a factual and engaging record of your life and times that will be available for generations to come. Bring a lunch; we’ll take a short break. [ALL LEVELS] ...
