Do you find yourself entertaining others telling the stories of “back when you were a kid?” Has someone told you, “You should really write that story down for your children?” Would you like to share what it was like growing up the way you did? These memories are as important a part of a family’s heritage as are photos, antiques and genealogy because these stories are a part of history told by people who have lived these everyday experiences.
The Wilton Public Library will be hosting a free series of six classes on writing stories of your own life experience. The Wilton Writer’s Workshop will be led by Lyda Lanier and Gina Rae and held in the library on Tuesdays from 2-4 running from January 21st to February 25th. This class will provide time for exploring story ideas, writing and sharing your stories for class feedback. Participants can expect to complete five stories during the course. Students should bring a wide lined notebook and a pen or pencil to the first class. If you are interested in attending please call the library at (608) 435-6710 or send us an email at email@example.com.
If you need inspiration, stop in the library and have a look at our display of memoirs by famous authors.
