GROUP 1:

Since we began in 2014, we have shared stories on our childhoods and careers, on facing retirement and travel.  We share our stories by emailing them to each other thus having time to offer thoughtful ideas for improving our writing.  We have shared in the pleasure of watching each other grow as writers.

 We usually spend time doing impromptu writing at our meetings.  We offer prompts to spur our creativity.

When: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month
Time: 9:30 - 12:00 PM
Dates: September 25, 2018 - June 4, 2019
Where: Rosedale Community Centre, Board Room
901 11 Ave. NW
Facilitators: Janet Bowes and Sally Shah 
Register: Janet and Sally   *
   

Janet has taught writing classes at MRU.  Sally has been facilitating the group since it began.

Registration is required. Maximum group size is 12.

Our life stories shape us.  Writing our stories enables us to reflect on and recognize some of the important directions of our lives.  At each session, we provide a prompt/theme as a possible starting point for your next story submission. Stories are shared by email and we respond to each other’s stories. The responses are brought to the next meeting and discussed.  Our intent is to learn from each other, encourage each other and have some fun along the way. As time permits, in each session we also do a short free fall writing exercise. 

Facilitators: Terry Lende and Pat Hogan
