Your class confirmation email will contain the Zoom class link.

This class meets online on Zoom beginning at 10am on Wednesday, October 7.

Join us for a 6 -week Memoir Writing group, to learn how to make those cherished memories and special stories come to life. This may be one of the most precious gifts you can give to your children and grandchildren, truly, a legacy of love. This course will be taught by Kathleen Budreski, who has been helping seniors to write their legacies of life and love, for several years.

At each session you will be guided by a prompt to help “prime the pump”. We will start small with a paragraph or two i.e. What was my favorite birthday when I was a child? We will invite your muse in to help spark ideas that wish to surface. (Yes, we all have a muse even though we may not be aware of it!). It is not necessary to start a Memoir from beginning to end. All life stories link together eventually.

You will be invited to write at home as you have time and desire and share your stories the following week. Beginners and seasoned writers are welcome. We all learn from each other.

This is designed to be an enjoyable and enriching experience.

Please bring a loose-leaf notebook and pen, so that you can add pages as you continue. Lined 3-hole paper will be provided, participants should bring writing tools, journals or lap-tops if desired. (Some people might prefer writing on devices.)

You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.

You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.

If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.

Kathleen is a registered nurse who loves teaching and supporting people on their life path. After many years in more traditional settings, Hospitals, VNA, Managed Care, Pastoral Care and Hospice work, she is enjoying retirement doing what she loves most. Grand-mothering, gardening, reading, swimming, biking and mentoring people in Memoir Groups like this! A life-long learner and journaler, Kathy loves to share her joy of storytelling and legacy writing with people of all ages.
