Family Story Writing: Creating Artifacts of Memory – Spring 2021

Perception and personal experiences are the keys to gathering an interesting family legacy. You know the story. You’ve been writing or telling it for years. You’ve been listening. You know the genealogy. Now it’s time to create artifacts of memory to be passed down for years to come. Using old photographs we
will write in class to mine memories and excavate details. We will edit these stories to create short narratives and poems. The stories written can be used to create small chapbooks or chapters for a larger legacy memoir. For all levels.

Laverne Zabielski is a writer, artist, and publisher of Act of Power Press. She received her MFA in writing at Spalding University in Louisville. She has taught classes and published chapbooks for writers nationally and internationally since 1994.
