Legacy Writing: Capturing Family Stories for Future Generations
Create a written legacy of your life! Have you always wanted to document your life stories for future generations, but have never gotten around to it, or known where to begin? Perhaps you have started, but are stuck or overwhelmed. Maybe you want to pen your stories just for yourself, without any intention of sharing. If any of these scenarios ring true, this class is for you. You will examine your past and construct written vignettes or "captured moments" of your life. You will look for themes in your life, as well as your values and beliefs, as a way to organize your work. The main focus of this class is to provide practical and creative ways to help you write, through effective journaling techniques. At the end of class, you will have a collection of stories and the know-how to continue your legacy writing, if desired. No class 2/21.
