This is a six session course, based on Mike Patterson’s book, “With Love ..gifting your stories to your grandchildren.” Of course you don’t have to have grandchildren in order to join. Your stories could be for nieces, nephews or just writing for your own pleasure. At each session of just over two hours participants are expected to read a memoir which will be shared with the group. Particular aspects of writing are discussed and positive critique is given.
