Author and poet Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” This spring I will once again offer a four-week evening class is for adults who have always wanted to write, but can’t seem to find the time. This workshop-style class will encourage adults to find their unique voice through discussing the craft of writing, using writing exercises and prompts and sharing with other writers. Whether you want to write informally or to publish your memoir, this class will help you learn to tell your story.
A recent article in the New York Times pointed out that research has shown that writing and re-writing your personal story can make your happier. Yes, this writing class can improve your mood.
This past October I taught the class for the first time to eight wonderful writers through Spring Branch Community Education. They were young and old, male and female, working and retired, mothers, fathers, grandparents. This amazing group looked at their lives and the craft of writing to authentically tell their stories. If you are interested in the April class, you can contact SBISD Department of Community Education here. The class will be on the four Monday evenings in April 7 to 9 pm. Next October I will offer a new class for adults who want to tell MORE stories. See you there! I can’t wait to hear your story.
