Creative Age Festival presents the second of its Creative Age Series with

"The Life-Changing Power of Memoir Writing" with Janette Turner.

This interactive program will spark your creativity and may help you uncover a new talent. If you have felt frustrated that memoir writing is overwhelming, then this class may be your breakthrough. You will learn simple methods for turning memories into stories, and stories into a memoir.

With perceptive prompts and examples, you will learn easy techniques to get your life story down on paper. At the end of class, you will have a notebook of key stories and memories to use.

To gain the most from this workshop, bring a photograph to use as a memory springboard. The photo can be of anything that sparks recollection. Many people bring photos of themselves as youngsters. Others find a photo of parents helpful, or a photo of a place that means so much. It is your choice.
