Are great writers born that way? Or do their experiences make them great writers? Either way, no story is ever written without sitting down and putting pen to paper. If you've been afraid to take a writing course because you think it will be a bunch of stodgy folks who sit in the quiet with their pens scribbling furiously, then this is the class for you! Beth Hermes facilitates a class that is creative, inspiring, and downright FUN.

Do you have boxes of pictures with no information attached?  You have kept or created these images so that your memories can live on. But how can others walk down your memory lane without words, guideposts or information.  In this course, you will bring your special pictures and with guidance from the instructor you will be able to tell your story.  You can tell the funny details of a trip that right now only you know.  You can tell the stories that show your pride in family, accomplishments and growth.  This course is all about FUN. We are NOT writing memoirs, we are NOT part of an art class.  We are simply re-living important events and ensuring that when we are no longer able to tell theses tales, the words will already be there.  The instructor, June Converse recently, received a large box of photographs from her mother's estate. She wanted to walk down memory lane but it was impossible.  Let's create some dedicated, focused time to explain why these pictures hold a place in our hearts. The instructor will give you some ideas, some focus, some motivation and to hear your stories.  A $20 supply fee will be due to the instructor on the first day of class.  Supplies included will be special pens, paper and tape.
