New fall writing workshops

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” ~Henry Ford

I’m excited about several new workshops I’ll be teaching at two local libraries this fall. The first is described below, and other workshops will be announced on this blog as we get closer to the dates.



September 21 — 6:30-7:30p.m. — Blair Memorial Library Clawson

Phone: 248-588-5500

Personal journaling provides many therapeutic benefits. In particular, writing about our goals, worries, and experiences can help us navigate the challenges of aging and increase our life satisfaction. This class will focus on journaling topics for older adults — retirement, personal reinvention, finding new purpose, facing health challenges, dealing with generational differences, understanding our changing roles in the family, and more. Sponsored by the Friends of Blair Memorial Library, the program is free to the public. Advance registration is required (seating is limited).
