Saturday, March 18 — 9:00am-4:15pm at Orange City Town Hall community room
Instructor: Barbara Turnwall
In this one-day workshop, you are invited to write about your life experiences to preserve them for yourself and perhaps future generations. In class, we’ll discuss memoir and strategies for writing them, then spend time writing–and often sharing–your stories to encourage every participant to keep writing.
Barbara Turnwall taught literature and writing at Northwestern College from 1966-2012. For the last 25 years, she has contributed to the Iowa Writing Project as instructor, site director, Advisory Board and Steering Committee member. With the encouragement of IWP leaders, she created and directed the Hispanic Story Project to gather and preserve the stories of our Hispanic neighbors. These stories are available bilingually on the Iowa Writing Project website.
In 2009, Turnwall was awarded the Distinguished Service Award from the Iowa Council of Teachers of English. She continues to enjoy motivating others to write about their lives—their stories of interesting people, places, and happenings.
The class will break for an hour at lunch time.
