Writing Life Stories Workshop

What is the event about?

Students take Writing Life Stories classes to leave a legacy for loved ones and learn more about themselves. Unlike in memoir classes, participants write quickly and easily about carefully chosen themes. There isn’t a focus on the craft of writing, but rather on the raw story.

In this workshop, you'll gain insight about the guided autobiography method taught for over 30 years to thousands of students. After an exercise and priming questions, you'll write briefly. You then share this story with a supportive group.

What is the event about?

Stop by the Museum at 2:00 pm for a free tour (with paid admission to the gallery) of our current exhibit and two permanent exhibits. Learn about the history of the Museum and get inspired by notable women from the past.

#metoo is not a fight borne of anger, it is not a declaration of war against men, and it is not a witch-hunt.  

#metoo is a strong, unified, voice that seeks to put an end to silencing those who have been hurt, and to say out loud, “No more!”
