Telling Your Story


Have you ever looked at your life and wondered how to make sense of it? We all have. Writing forces us to think through our life experiences, one sentence at a time. In the process, memories become coherent and we find a sense of purpose. This class will show you how to write about something that matters to you, whether a favorite relative or a lesson learned through personal hardship or happier times. You’ll learn how to turn an idea into a story or essay and at the end of six weeks, you’ll have a written work to share.


Please note:  Students should have basic writing skills, computer and e-mail access.
