Course Description:

We humans are storytelling creatures! The stories and poems of our lives help make us who we are. But not until they are written down do we know them fully. Through writing, our lives, our impressions of the world, those memories and observations, our wealth of knowledge, gain detail and a depth that we might have never guessed at. Join me for a monthly opportunity to discover and explore your very own stories. Let yourself be led by your vast imagination and grow your curious nature. Make writing a way to celebrate the mystery of being alive!
