Shelter Their Stories: Writing About Who We Lost – Winter 2022

In this three-part class led by the founding director of The WhoWeLost Project, participants will craft brief memorial stories about someone they’ve lost to COVID-19, or due to other causes within the general time frame of the pandemic. Together, we will focus on how to capture and document the details of our loved ones’ lives in a way that respects the writer as well as the mourned. This class also welcomes anyone who has recently suffered the loss of a loved one but wishes to write about other topics in a supportive space. Participants have the option to publish their remembrances on either the Kentucky or national WhoWeLost websites, as well as possibly participate in a radio series with WUKY. For all levels.

Martha Greenwald is an award-winning poet who has been teaching writing for over 20 years. She believes the WhoWeLost project is a vital way for us to honor the lives of Americans lost to COVID-19.

This class is offered in-person with a virtual option. The class will meet primarily in person at the Carnegie Center, and we invite you to join via Zoom if you are unable to attend a session.
