Wednesdays: 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM between November 6 - 01.15.2020. In this workshop participants will read and discuss memoirs, stories, essays, letters, and poetry written by and about women in the second half of life. The readings will include evocations of the experiences of older women as well as reflections by women on the phases of their lives as girls, young, and mature women. Mining these sources for perspectives on what it means to be a woman and a woman seasoned by time, participants will sample a variety of approaches to writing about our lives. Each session will include discussion of craft, a writing prompt, and rich conversation about the readings and class members’ own experience. The short readings will include such authors as Heilbrun, Truitt, Lamott, Olds, and Sarton, as well as lesser-known wonderful writers. Note: No meeting on November 27, December 25, or January 1.
