Lifescapes is a writing program for people with life stories to share. The group meets for writing guidance and support on a regular basis during the fall, winter and spring (a schedule will be provided at the first meeting). An anthology of memoirs will be published at the end of the course.
Lifescapes is a progressive guided writing program for seniors who wish to record their memories. During the Lifescapes meetings we:
- Explore your life experiences to help you decide which ones to write about.
- Shared stories with each other.
- Learn how to write a great story with the help of visiting authors and storytellers.
Volunteers help with typing, editing, and scanning photos.
All of the Lifescapes member's stories are published in an anthology at the end of the program.
Meeting dates: January 9 & 23, February 6 & 20, March 6 & 20, April 3 & 17 / 2:30 p.m. / Main Branch
