Being Creative

Explore your creativity!

Have you ever thought about sharing the memories, stories, and experiences of your life through a memoir?

Join local Wayne Smith for a monthly program to exchange storytelling tips and inspiration from fellow aspiring memoirists.  You can write to memoir prompts, share stories with others or just listen.  The program will focus on memoir writing, and will allow participants to explore different media for recording memoir, from books to audio recordings to various other multimedia.

For the Oct 9 session, please bring a family photo or two!
