Do you have a story to tell? Write your personal essay on aging, be it quirky or serious, funny or poignant. By telling our stories we connect with others, recognize our common humanity and realize we are not alone on this journey. This course is designed to help you craft a compelling story. To that end, we will discuss the elements of a successful essay, including what to write about, where to start, voice, the importance of details, and the revision process. Writing exercises will generate ideas; readings, discussions, and gentle group feedback will help improve your story. The goal is to have a completed essay. Publishing options will also be discussed.
