April 21, 2020 – May 26, 2020 (six consecutive Tuesdays) – 10:00 am to noon
Leigh Morrow will provide an inspiring and supportive environment for participants, using proven, engaging exercises, priming questions and themes to spark creativity, self-awareness and memory recall to start writing an autobiography.
Over the six-week course, Leigh will approach different themes and common experiences to create a broad range of stories focusing on major life events. No previous writing experience is needed, but most participants do find their writing skills improve! For many, these life stories provide a legacy for their grandchildren and those who follow, and for others it is a good tool for reflection on their life and their milestones.
