Program Description

Event Details

Holiday Memories Memoir Writing Group (Sept. 19, 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17, and 24)

For six weeks, writers will discover personal memories from holidays past, craft stories into written memoir, and share their written work. Writers of all levels of experience are welcome. Participants will be invited to contribute one original story to a collection that will be printed at the library; each contributor will receive a copy; a great gift for a special person.

Sessions will address ways to retrieve details, create believable characters, organize the narrative, use dialogue effectively, sharpen the text through careful editing, and related topics. Linda Loomis will facilitate the group.

Linda Loomis has facilitated writing groups at several area libraries and taught journalism and creative writing at SUNY Oswego, where she was a tenured professor and director of the journalism program. Prior to teaching, she had been an editor and reporter for the Brown Newspapers (The Liverpool Review) and editor of the OSWEGO Alumni Magazine. Her byline now appears on articles about music and the arts at Post-Standard, where she is a contributing writer. She is committed to helping people write fiction, poetry, and memoir that is interesting, creative, and engaging.
