Whether intending to record family history, recall a travel experience or explore personal connections to the past, participants will learn strategies for writing about a person, place or object that holds special meaning to them. The session will begin by considering a few short excerpts from published memoirs as inspiration and models for getting started. Next, participants will respond to a series of questions to stimulate reflection about their focus and begin drafting a paragraph or two to share, as they wish, with others. The goal is to generate ideas and begin a writing journey that may develop into a legacy for a younger generation, a path into self-discovery or simply a slice-of-life to share with friends and family. Participants will find it helpful to bring a photograph or an object (or photo of the object) that will be the subject of their writing.
