Spend a few hours with someone you miss. In this season of All Souls we welcome back those who are gone from our lives. This workshop will offer you tools for commemorating people you love in words that speak deeper than photos. Use memoir writing skills to revive someone, or a part of yourself, whom you have lost. We will use prompts to release memories then organize these into short prose pieces and/or poems. Whether you want to honor someone at an event, share your writing with family and friends, keep a vivid cameo for yourself, or just bask in time spent with a dear one, join us.
