For many years Glory Aiken offered a Chesapeake Forum course titled “True Stories Well Told.” This course carries on that tradition, using her content description:  Would you like to write about your life, your family, and its unique history? The significance of particular events? Then join us as we start or continue our journey into the art of memoir writing. 

We will learn what memoir writing is all about from master class books, such as Stephen King’s On Writing. Class participants will share 1-2 page stories with the group each week and have an opportunity to seek suggestions in a supportive environment.  We will also discuss opportunities available to publish our memoirs.  Current COVID requirements will be followed. Note: The Bullitt House is not handicapped accessible.

This course will take place at the Bullitt House in Easton                                                                         

4 Sessions | Mondays | Nov. 8, 15, 22, 29 | 10 – 11:30 am | $40
