Description: Ancestors and others who came before us deserve to be remembered. No previous writing experience is required. This 2-hour workshop offers writers of all genres and all levels the opportunity to bring the family stories theyʼveheard and details from ancestral paper trails onto the page. Perhaps you've come across a photo or a family heirloom that intrigues you. Maybe you've found your immigrant grandparents' citizenship papers. Maybe that story Uncle Irving told you about your great-grandparents still commands your attention. Join us as we journey to bring life to these voices and share them with our own and new generations.
