In this intergenerational workshop for individuals and family “teams,” we will sift through our memories, recollecting stories from the families we have found for ourselves or were born into. This workshop is for all ages. Writers are encouraged to invite an older/younger family member or a friend who has become family, but individual writers will also find inspiration and guidance for their recollecting and writing processes.
We will use a variety of prompts and brainstorming techniques as we seek out the stories we want to tell. Then writers will be given time to write their story (or poem). At our second workshop, we will share and celebrate our rough drafts and give each other encouraging feedback for revision. Sponsored by Hathaway Brown.
