Writing Life Workshop: The Library of Memory: Recovering Your Story with Julia Ain-Krupa

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 - 11:00 AM | Little Whitridge Room | open to the public | free of charge | registration required

This 6-week workshop will explore new ways of connecting to storytelling and discovering how fulfilling writing one’s own story can be. Participants will delve into writing emotions and connecting to the meaning of one’s own life experience. This is a workshop for those who have always wished to write about their lives, but who have hesitated, and for anyone looking to tell their story to connect to others, or simply to revitalize their memory. Through creative exercises, we will work to connect to the past to find meaning in the present.

This workshop is limited to 10 people and is recommended for participants age 60 and up.

Julia Ain-Krupa is a writer and multi-disciplinary artist. She has contributed to Cinema Editor and is the author of Roman Polanski: A Life in Exile (Praeger, 2010).
