10 am – 4 pm
This workshop is designed for journal writers, people writing family stories, and creative writers who want to record their life stories—those significant tales of transition, adventure, loss, and triumph. We use a series of writing exercises to retrieve and record the important people, places, and events in our lives. We also discuss how in telling our stories we come to better understand the meaning they have for us.
Carol LaChapelle has been teaching writing workshops in a variety of adult education and professional development venues throughout the Chicago area, including the Newberry, the Feltre School, and the Illinois Humanities Council.
