Memoir Writing Group in Algarrobo: U3A invites you to join our Sept. 6th first gathering from 11am to 1pm. We’ve all heard the old cliché that there is a story in each one of us. However, many individuals hesitate for many reasons (lack of time, guidance, opportunity, and resources, etc…). We like to suggest that you have nothing to lose and all to gain if you are at all interested in starting the collection of your memories (or continuing a former effort). We will welcome you and encourage you all the way. This group is suitable for beginners or seasoned writers. Our mission is to inspire you to preserve personal or family history and cultural heritage. Our gatherings will help you tap into your past to weave the threads that created the designs and scenes of what you do and who you are today. Joining us will help you capture your past and transform it into a manageable and inspiring narrative. These gatherings are free with a U3A membership (www.u3aaxarquia.com). For registration and/or more info, contact Norma at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
