“If I don’t write it down, who will know what I accomplished?” asked a participant in my first “Obituaries” workshop, which I taught at the Monona library back in 2006. Now I’m back in Monona, teaching “Obits” again!
This workshop will meet for 2 afternoons, September 13 and 20th, 2:30-4:00 p.m. at the Monona Senior Center, 1011 Nichols Road.
So many people pass through your life–but not one among them will know everything you’ve done, or felt, or valued. Every life story deserves a polished telling, but that seldom happens in the stressful time following a death.
With a little planning, you can write a lively, accurate picture of your life suitable for publication when the time comes. This program covers the revival of interest in obituaries in America, how to draft an obituary for yourself or a loved one, and other considerations related to your legacy at life’s close. Don’t let your life’s path go unremarked.
Attendees should bring paper and pen/pencils for in-class exercises. Class fee is $30. To register, contact Lori Chapman, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (608) 222-3415.
