WRITING YOUR MEMOIR Mondays: April 3, 17; May 8, 22; June 5, 19 from 4 - 5 p.m. The thought of writing a memoir might be daunting, but it doesn't have to be! With a little guidance and effort, anyone can relive their life on paper, and share their story with their loved ones. This series of classes will be focused on discussion, technique, and guidance. Participants will be expected to share snippets with other classmates to get feedback. Registration necessary only for first class.
