Spiritual Memoir class at The Villages Enrichment Academy @ Rohan Recreation Center

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Spirituality comes in all shapes, sizes, textures, and hues; it is certainly not one-size-fits-all. Our definitions of spirituality may vary, but we usually agree that these spiritual beliefs add meaning and purpose to our lives.

In this class, learn what spiritual memoir is and some of the many approaches to writing it. Discover the power of writing the daily moments of wonder, the dramatic occurrences that forever change lives, and the deep, gradual beliefs formed over time. No previous writing experience is required for this fun, hands-on class.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space hide_on_mobile=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Register Here” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fdistrictgov.maxgalaxy.net%2FBrowseActivities.aspx%3FActivityFilter%3D6|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Learn some of the many approaches to writing your life stories, how to retrieve long-forgotten memories, painlessly organize your stories, tell an anecdote in an interesting and creative way, and so much more. Sounds like a lot of work? No way! We knock the ninth-grade English teacher with the bloody red pen off our shoulders and learn to have fun with words. Join this exciting workshop and walk out with the beginnings of your life story. No previous writing experience is necessary; the class motto: The only way to do this wrong is to not do it at all![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space hide_on_mobile=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Register Here” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fdistrictgov.maxgalaxy.net%2FBrowseActivities.aspx%3FActivityFilter%3D6|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Writing Your Life’s Author Showcase 2020 @ Fairview Vista Clubhouse
Nov 14 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Writing Your Life's Author Showcase 2020 @ Fairview Vista Clubhouse

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Join us for Writing Your Life’s second-annual Author Showcase where we celebrate several of our published authors! Each author will have an opportunity to share about their book and read a short excerpt. Following is a panel discussion where aspiring authors can ask questions about these authors’ writing and publishing experiences and what has happened since their book came out.

It is our hope that this event will allow many longtime Writing Your Life class members to reunite and the opportunity for you to meet and mingle with fellow authors and others who may need a word of encouragement.

Light refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space alter_height=”medium” hide_on_mobile=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
