How Poetry Speaks to Us in Times of Crisis

Instructor: Gail Lipsitz

During these months of turmoil, isolation and changes caused by the coronavirus, we have struggled to adapt and maintain our equilibrium. We need outlets for our emotions and we seek sources of perspective and hope. Poetry can help fill these human needs. Join us as we read and discuss poems about time, solitude, nature, and friendship. Poems will be posted on the Myerberg Center website the week before each class.

Memoir Writing

Instructor: Barbara Bass

This workshop will help participants retrieve their memories as they write about their lives, recording them for posterity, while at the same time preserving family history. During each session, participants will be encouraged to write, while guided by a skilled writer/teacher. Participants will be provided with writing prompts that will help to spark memories. Over the course of the session, participants will form a community of writers, sharing their stories with the other writers in the class.
