Write your story

By Lili Khalili

"I gather together the dreams, fantasies, experiences that preoccupied me as a girl, that stay with me and appear and reappear in different shapes and forms in all my work. Without telling everything that happened, they document all that remains most vivid."
Bell Hooks, author of Bone Black"

Suzanne Ortt 's WRITE YOUR STORY program is a friendly setting for those who like to organize their thought and start to write. This program has been started one and half years ago. Each program has five sessions. She modified and developed each one to include the best ways to guide the group to create coherent story from their personal experiences or imagination.

Two members have already started writing their memoir. In this program Suzanne discusses variety of ways to map your thought, and methods to edit the writing, in order to keep the story interesting. She describes how to go deeper into the stories through details and make it tangible for others. She shares her own writing and brings samples from Master literature.

It is an interesting process. Please join us the next Tuesday January 15 at 1 p.m. to start the new session. No registration is necessary and all sessions are open to public.
