Voices of Wisdom:

Preserving the Memories of the Elders – Free Writing Classes for seniors 55+ — every week through end of March-  see itinerary of classes under events tab.  The culmination of all the wonderful writing up through February will be a print and online anthology for Calaveras County. The program has been ongoing since August 2017.  Address: 1211 S. Main St. in Angels Camp. All levels welcome.

Phone to reserve a spot: 209-728-6171  or email: manzanitawp@gmail.com

March writing sessions continue on Tuesdays, through end of March, at Manzanita Arts Emporium in Angels Camp, from 2-4 pm. Stimulate deep memory with a focus on inner landscapes, your sense of place, and your own place in history and herstory. Free. The focus is on hands-on writing activities and multi-sensory approaches in digging out those once lost or hidden memories. It’s the no-fear approach. Be bold and take the time to do this for yourself and for your friends and family, for generations coming after you. If memories aren’t recorded, they disappear. Leave a legacy behind and write your time and experience onto the page.

The free Voices of Wisdom Tuesday afternoon writing sessions last through end of March, with more writing and final selections and peer and coach editing. Thank you, Calaveras Community Foundation, for your generous grant to make this program possible.
