What's Your Story?
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 will meet in person and welcome people who are interested in creating a memoir or 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.
Memoir gatherings will include guest speakers and 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. Folks are invited to circulate their stories and get feedback from the group. Come, share your story
