Writing chapters from one’s life story can produce gifts for family, and an important record of community life. In this course, we will read short passages from a variety of voices reflecting on lessons learned from life encounters. We will use these passages as prompts for our own writing, leading to a gathering of short life chapters for further reflection and revision over time. No experience necessary, but a willing heart.

Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
