Lifewriting: A six week series with Mary Muir

Tuesdays September 20 & 27, October 4, 11, 18 & 25 at 10:00 a.m.

In today's electronic fast paced world our stories get lost. In this series, participants will pause to savor and share the stories that connect us.  Through conversation and writing, the group will share memories of the experiences that make us who we are, tell stories from their lives, and connect with others through shared expression. 

Participants will be guided through easy to follow exercises to capture in words and images the threads that connect us to one another.  No prior writing experience needed --  just a pen and 8x10 journal or notebook.  

Everyone we meet has a story to tell. All that is required is a willingness to come, connect, have fun and capture what is in your heart.  This a great way to meet new friends! 

Space is limited so please register for this series at the Information Desk at (781) 395-7950
Mary Muir has a Masters Degree in Counseling Education from Northeastern University. She has post graduate courses in Pastoral Counseling Expressive Arts Education and Facilitation.

Presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library
