Living in a college town, “Back to School” season triggers a longing to devote time to learning and growing, no matter our calendar age.  I’ve got a fresh set of workshops lined up to help you get started and stay motivated as you do the important, satisfying, creative work of writing about your life or that of your ancestors.
