  • Workshop: HISTORY through YOUR story … a writing / storytelling workshop
    Imagine finding your great-grandmother’s diary describing life 100 years ago and the events that made up your history books.  Now, imagine developing a legacy of your own, preserving the history of your time and transforming your ordinary days into extraordinary stories. Storyteller and writer Megan Hicks shows you how to mine your memories and unearth the “diamonds in the rough” of everyday life.
