What's Your Story?  Memoir Affinity Group

Have your children, grandchildren, or other young people in your life ever asked you what it was like when you were growing up? Have you ever thought about writing a memoir or creating an oral history? The Memoirs Affinity Group focuses on creating memoirs. Stories, as told by the people who lived them, reflect a unique piece of history and will be treasured by the storytellers, their families and maybe others for generations to come.

The Group brings together people who are interested in creating a memoir with people who have already done so.  The group attempts to create a space where participants can share approaches to getting started, resources for creating memoirs and ways to stay motivated to create memoirs for themselves, family members and others.

The first in-person gathering will be held at the Lockwood Apartment Solarium.  Please bring a notepad.  We will facilitate group discussion on topics such as: getting started, obstacles to revealing memories, writing habits and staying motivated, and major themes and threads creating your story."  Participants are always invited to read from their memoir or tell a story about a memory.
