Starting with Orientation in September, the group gathers for writing guidance and support on a regular basis throughout the fall, winter, and spring. A schedule is provided at the first meeting and new members are accepted until the end of January.
Over the course of a Lifescapes program year you can expect to:
- Explore your life experiences, to help you decide which ones to write about.
- Share stories in a supportive environment.
- Learn how to write a great story, sometimes with the help of visiting authors and storytellers.
- Get assistance with editing text and scanning photos.
- See your story published in the annual anthology.
Tuesdays / January 15 & 29, February 12 & 26, March 12 & 26, April 9 & 23 / 2:30 p.m. Main Branch
