  "What's Your Story?" Memoir Workshop
   
Monday, April 17, 2017; 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM  See other Dates
Cedar Rapids Public Library

A picture is worth a thousand words but memories are priceless. Have you recorded your memories for future generations? If this is a “someday” project on your bucket list, now is the time.

Independence author and freelance writer Jacquie McTaggart will launch the “What’s Your Story?” project at the Ladd Library at 1:30 pm on April 3. Jacquie will walk us through the process, step by step and chuckle by chuckle.

This free “What’s Your Story?” workshop will meet for 90 minutes every Monday for six weeks. It is open to all. Our purpose is not to write beautiful prose, but rather to make a written record of the people and events that have shaped our lives.

Each class period will include a “senior joke”, an oral reading of a short published memoir, a mini lesson on the craft of writing, and a “socializing break” – complete with goodies! You will be given a slice of life homework topic each week, and (on a voluntary basis) have an opportunity to share your work with the rest of the group on the following Monday.

American writer Mary Flannery O' Connor once said that anyone who has survived childhood has enough material to write for the rest of his or her life, and we agree. So, suppress your fears and join us for this enjoyable, non-threatening and rewarding experience. You’ll be glad you did and so will we. And… you’ll create a priceless family heirloom.

Regular attendance is encouraged, but NOT mandatory. If you enroll but can’t make a session or two (sometimes life gets in the way), don’t worry about it.
