FBWEV Learns How to Write a Memoir
On Wednesday, Feb. 4th, over ten Villagers gathered to learn the basics of memoir writing. These energetic and engaging seniors had many life changing experience to share, but did not know how to effectively select, record, and build them into a narrative that reflects how important these experiences were.
Author Nina Sichel designed a workshop specifically for the FBWE Village for new as well as experienced writers. By using discussion and writing exercises the group explored ways to begin to look at stories they wanted to share with family and friends proving that our own stories are worthy of effective storytelling skills.
