A 2-hour Workshop:
A Gentle Goodbye: Life-Affirming Stories
with Andrea M. Penner

Saturday: September 14, 2024
12:30 – 2:30 pm
In Person & via Zoom
SWW members: $20 ♦ Non-members: $30

This 2-hour workshop encourages you to consider end-of-life storytelling as a privilege and a gift. The instructor shares her expertise as a writer and editor, and her extensive experience with eldercare, to teach you the craft of writing personal remembrances, not template obituaries. As “the writer in the family,” you may be called upon to participate in the life-affirming experience of writing an obituary for a relative, friend, or even yourself. In this 2-hour workshop, we will study and discuss examples. You will also respond to generative writing prompts: Q&A surveys designed to jog your memory and creative exercises to help you recall and honor a life (or lives) through writing.
