Plan to attend our meeting on Saturday April 15, 2023. This program is a workshop to help us develop our stories about the Hurricane Ian experience. Prose or poetry – whatever your favored writing style – the only rule is that it must be true (or mostly true).
Jeanne Meeks and Mary Charles conduct memoir workshops in their home communities. They’ll bring some of their experience and advice, along with some challenging exercises, to our April 15th meeting. It will be a fast-paced hour in which we’ll each develop or refine a story about the September 28, 2022 storm.
The stories you write on Saturday will become part of the permanent record of Hurricane Ian. We’re creating an anthology of storm stories to be printed before the anniversary of Ian’s visit. In partnership with the Alliance for the Arts, we intend to have this book on display and for sale during their planned month-long exhibit in September 2023.Join us this Saturday, April 15, 2023 at 10:00 am. Because it’s a hands-on workshop, we’ll be meeting in person only. There will not be a Zoom component this time.
