Writing is one way in which we can remember and record the extraordinary and the everyday of our lives. Join us for a series of virtual workshops where we will write as curators of our lives.

Each workshop will address a different theme of our lives:  places (workshop 1); people (workshop 2), objects (workshop 3).  We will use poetic examples to explore how other writers have captured moments in their lives and sensory writing prompts to write our own memories. Writers of all styles, skill levels, and genres are welcome.

This is an interactive online course using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
