Have you ever wanted to put some of the strange, wonderful, exciting, and discouraging events in your life into a form so that the next generation can experience what you have experienced? When you capture the past, you offer a gift to the future. That’s what this workshop on making memories come alive is all about.

Classes will be held online via Zoom each Tuesday in June:

We will learn some of the tricks to writing a memoir.
We will learn how to create dialogue, to set up scenes, and to develop drama
like professional writers do.
By looking at short memories and learning to use some of the tools of writing
fiction, we will bring our past to life.
One time payment of $40 gives access to this 4 class series.
This is a reduced rate thanks to support from the Carolina Foundation for Jewish Seniors. *Scholarships are available for those in need. **For scholarship details, contact Lia Miller at lia@can-nc.org.
