“Telling Your Own Story” topic of Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – We all have a story to tell. Not a dry, chronological inventory of life since birth or a private entry in a diary – but an honest reflection of some aspect of your life, recounted in a style that suites your personality.
Taking that first step in telling your story – in writing a memoir – can often be the most difficult. Join us at the August Seniors Count-Nashua workshop to learn tips on how to get your creative juices flowing to help you write compelling personal essays to cherish and share.
The free workshop is scheduled for Monday, August 11, 2014 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, 70 Temple St. It begins at 1:00pm.
Workshop presenter is Carolyn Choate, on-air talent and program manager for tv13 Nashua. Choate has a Master’s in Writing from Rivier University with a deep interest in writing memoir following her diagnosis of State 3b breast cancer in 2003.
Advance registration for the workshop is strongly requested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
