Each week participants engage in writing activities based on topics of their own choosing such as likely chapters that they would include in their personal memoirs. This helps to make the sessions more relevant, meaningful, and productive for each person because they can build/expand these pieces. Members often discover recurring themes and/or identify other topics to explore. Writers are invited (strictly voluntary) to share their pieces with the group. The feedback offered usually promotes insights as well as other helpful strategies to improve our writing. Other benefits of participating in a writing group are the motivation and encouragement derived by being with like-minded writers. You will be surprised to see how you are capturing some of "your" stories. Sessions will be for approximately 60-75 minutes.
