Voices of the Past: Crafting the Stories of Your Family's History
Zoom link will be sent the week of the event
Description: Ancestors and others who came before us deserve to be remembered. No previous writing experience is required. This 2-hour workshop offers writers of all genres and all levels the opportunity to bring the family stories they╩╝ve heard and details from ancestral paper trails onto the page. Perhaps you've come across a photo or a family heirloom that intrigues you. Maybe you've found your immigrant grandparents' citizenship papers. Maybe that story Uncle Irving told you about your great-grandparents still commands your attention. Join us as we journey to bring life to these voices and share them with our own and new generations.
