Storyteller's Group
With Marti Swanson
This is a new group for those interested in the DOING of writing. Do you need an assigned topic? Do you need deadlines to help get you motivated? This group is dedicated to writing family stories for sharing with family members to ensure they don’t get lost.

Before July 12, write a page or two about a grandparent or other older relative who impacted your life. Your narrative should include the facts of that person's life: the skeleton (ie, b,m,d,bur--when & where), but also put flesh on those ancestral bones--the why and how. Or you might write about an incident in that person's life which had a significant impact on what followed. Perhaps you might write about a special time you spent with that person and, of course, why it was so special.

Print up 3 copies of your narrative for sharing with others. Your audience will have the opportunity to make suggestions for improvement as well as to enjoy your story before you share it with your family.

CAGGNI's Marti Swanson will facilitate.  Hope to see you there!
