Event description

Description

Take a little time on a quiet summer evening to relax, reflect, and create! Drop by a memoir writing workshop at the Somerville Public Library central branch on Thursdays in August. Local writer Elizabeth Moroney will guide you through writing exercises that help you put your past in words. You’ll leave with strategies and ideas to keep your writing going. At the end, you’ll have the opportunity to share your story in a community art installation.

Cheese and other treats from Formaggio Kitchen will be provided.
