Having the Last Say: Capturing Your Legacy in One Small Story
Monday, March 27, 2017 7:00pm
As we age, we take on the challenge of making sense of life in its third act. Having the Last Say, a writing workshop offered by author and writing coach Alan Gelb, takes life review out of the realm of memoir writing and makes the timeless tradition of storytelling accessible to those who have never considered themselves “writers.” Workshop participants will learn how to create short narratives that capture and reflect their values, creating keepsakes to be shared with family and friends—or even come away with a valedictory that can be read at their own memorial service.
