Each of us is a living legacy of memories, experiences, and history. By writing down our stories we create more than a family legacy. We discover certain themes in our lives and develop greater wisdom about ourselves. The Life Enrichment Center’s Pages of My Life—Writing Your Life Story class will help individuals collect and compile their life stories.
Pages of My Life is taught by author and editor Paula Stahel, who is immediate past president of the Association of Personal Historians Inc. With her help, you will learn to tap into your natural talent for preserving your stories.
“You get excited about the prospect of writing, even your own story that you thought no one would want to hear,” said Sally Baker, who had a story published in The Tampa Tribune after taking the class. “Paula’s class was one of the best experiences I’ve had while learning. It was very educational, but at the same time fun and enjoyable. Paula’s interest and depth are very contagious.”
Classes will meet on Fridays, starting on January 18, through March 8 from 10 a.m. until noon at the Life Enrichment Center, 9704 N. Boulevard.
The eight-week course fee is $125 for members of the Life Enrichment Center or $150 for non-members. Annual memberships to the Life Enrichment Center start at $30. Class size is limited and advance registration is required. Classes are open to adults of all ages.
