Mother’s Day Memories Writing Salon
Sharing family memories through artifacts, photographs and stories connects us to our history and weaves the thread of understanding between generations. This workshop is intended for adult children and their mothers as a celebration of the past and the unveiling of a story, still untold. Through guided, active, immersive discussion prompts, participants will explore a story they want to share with their loved one, one that hasn’t yet been told, but that defines them, through an artifact or treasured photograph that they will bring to the session.
Afternoon tea and treats will be provided.
Pam Clark’s journey to writing her first novel, Kalyna, began with exploring her family history in Edna-Star. Pam has melded her love of history, storytelling and poetry into her career as an educator and was inspired to write the novel as a celebration of the human spirit, the ability to forgive and the necessity to move forward in turbulent times. Pam has also written freelance for magazines, ACUA Vitae, and Creatures All as well as the scholarly journal, Canadian Children. Her poetry chapbook entitled, “Riding the Waves of a Newfoundland Summer”, earned her a place at the People’s Poetry Festival in Calgary. Pam is honoured to have been the 2018-2019 Writer Mentor for the Canmore Shoe Project as well as currently mentoring with Borderlines Writers’ Circle Calgary. She teaches elementary school in Calgary where she lives with her supportive family.
