Giving Voice to Our Stories!

So many of us enjoy writing, but instead of sharing our work we accumulate boxes of journals, stories, essays, etc. over the years. We replay in our minds insightful moments and experiences, thinking someday we’ll get them written down and even published. If you would like to give voice to your life stories, to liberate them from memory—let them have a life of their own—this is the class for you. We’ll write vignettes and essays utilizing a variety of narrative writing techniques to find the larger narrator within each of our stories: the voice which is able to discern the themes, patterns, and metaphors running through our lives: the voice which is more reliable and fresh than memory: the voice which keeps us evolving.

Whether you’re putting family stories together for the clan, seeking to publish a memoir, or simply interested in writing more vibrant personal essays, this class will allow you to explore, be heard, and get feedback in a supportive environment. Practice getting out of your head, onto the page, and into a larger life! Continuing students are welcome.
