Beyond the Obituary: Writing End-of-Life Stories

March 6 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

with Laura Stavoe Saturday, March 6Workshop Session 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday, March 15 Optional Follow-up 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm One way to bring people together even during COVID times is through writing. This workshop will explore end-of-life writing projects from documenting the end-of-life experiences for future generations to creating collaborative online publications. We will engage in a variety of writing exercises that can lead to legacy projects, family memoirs, letter collections, or online journals. This workshop includes some writing time away from the computer. Participants will also have an opportunity to come back together to share writing and project progress with each other. Suggested $25 donation to McCall Arts and Humanities Council. Register here.
