Cost: $50.00

When: Saturday, April 12, 9-11 a.m.

Journaling is a powerfully intimate and creative literary art, allowing space and time to pay close attention to and honor the stories from our lives.  During this workshop, we will begin a journal for our child/children as a simple and artful way to write the small stories otherwise lost in the swift movement of childhood.  Within its pages, we will share stories from our childhoods, our experiences and moments as caregivers, and create a space to record the incremental evolution of our children’s lives.

To participate, you do not need to be a writer, nor do you need to write perfectly or know how to begin or have to stop at Archivers…
Throughout this workshop, writers and non-writers alike will learn the art of writing stories and snapshots in a vivid and accessible way.  The only tools you’ll need to create this unique masterpiece are: a journal, your favorite pen/pens, Scotch tape, and great love.

You will leave this workshop with ideas and inspiration to continue this someday gift to your child/children (to be given when they are old enough to understand the love and work that goes into parenting and writing about parenting).

Ultimately, this journal will become a reflection of the blooming of two lives–of caregiver and child–eternally interconnected, as we move through this intense and fleeting time of life.

“When God thought of mother, He must have laughed with satisfaction and framed it quickly—so rich, so deep, so divine, so full of soul, power, and beauty, was the conception.”  -Henry Ward Beecher
