If you have ever been tempted to write stories about your experiences, this class is for you. Imagine the satisfaction of sharing your stories and traditions with future generations or simply reflecting on past experiences. Whether you want to write a few simple short stories, or document enough of your personal history to fill a book, this class can help you get started. We will go through a process that will help you identify memories you might want to share and techniques that can be used to generate the details of your stories. Additional discussion will focus on options to enhance stories with your personal interests or talents (e.g., adding photos, drawings, music, or fictional characters) and how to present stories in different formats (e.g., poem, lyrics, art, narrated slide show, blog). Students will be encouraged to share their writing with the class. 3 sessions @ 2 hrs each.
