Whether writing becomes an experience in reminiscence, or an exploration of the meaning of a life journey, the value of written recollections is unequaled for documenting and sharing your legacy. This seminar offers support for recording memories, thoughtful responses to reading one’s writing, and motivational support to do so.

Forms of writing include essays, letters, diaries, journals, poetry, or other options and may be rough draft, revisions in progress or a completed work. Presenters identify the type of feedback they would like to receive following their reading. Advance copies of the writing will be offered via email or by distribution of hard copies to enhance the participation of hearing-impaired members.

Role of participants:
Members will prepare and read two pieces of original writing during the semester according to a preplanned schedule.


About the Moderator(s):

The seminar, “Remembering the 60’s” has provided inspiration for Stephanie’s writing. Organizing April afternoons of poetry as well as serving as a moderator, committee member and chairperson are among Ina’s LIR memories.

Maximum number of participants: 12
