I am starting a Story Circle at my house. If you like to get to know other women by sharing your stories and listening to their stories, then you will enjoy our Story Circle. I will have two gatherings a month, one at night and one in the afternoon. You can come to any or all of the gatherings. Each gathering is a separate entitiy. You can miss any gathering and never be behind, and there is no homework. We will be talking, reading, writing, and listening. You choose how you want to be involved. You do not have to talk or write. You can just listen and eat cookies if you like!
The initial gathering will be next Tuesday, August 24th, at 7:00 pm at my house. I will send out emails/invites with more information. Beginning in September we'll be gathering the first Tuesday evening (7:00 pm) and the 4th Sunday afternoon (2:00 pm) of each month. You can come to one or both of the gatherings. I will send out email reminders. I hope you will come and see what's happening. Nothing is required.
I have a badge on my blog that will take you to the Story Circle Network if you want more information. This is their formal description of their purpose:
The Story Circle Network (SCN) offers the only lifewriting program designed exclusively for women. Since 1997, our nonprofit organization has provided learning/writing opportunities in memoir, reminiscence, journaling, poetry, family stories, kitchen table stories, writing-as-healing, writing for personal growth and spiritual development, poetry, blogging, and other areas. We teach general writing skills, organization, and critical editing, as well as technical skills in book design and development, online marketing, blogging, and other internet-related activities.
You do NOT have to be a member of SCN in order to come to our Story Circle. I am the only one who has to be a member. However, if you want more information about joining, go to http://www.storycircle.org/.
I truly hope you will come and enjoy the fellowship and be inspired by women's wisdom.
