Lifewriting: Putting Memory On Paper, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., NuNu’s Arts and Culture Collective, Arnaudville, Louisiana. Sign up here.

Life writing is writing your life story but it’s also capturing moments in your lifetime that impart wisdom to others, bring a smile to a person’s face — or tears, — invoke memories in others, provide another side to the story and leave behind history for future generations. We’ll discuss “What’s your story?” and the different ways to transform memories onto paper.

The first half of the class will be instruction and a writing exercise. If you like, bring photos and mementos. During the second half of the class, we’ll share what we’ve written.

Lunch will be provided for a small cost.

Note: This will be a safe writing and sharing space. No discussions or readings involving religion and politics or anything that might make someone uncomfortable.
