Writing from the HeART

. November 1, 2019.
HeART Gallery

If you are looking for an activity that incorporates creativity and exercises your memory, the Riverside Writers at the HeART Gallery could be for you. A guided creative writing workshop that encourages any form you’re drawn to, the Riverside meeting has a guide who provides topic ideas— think “wedding memories” and “my childhood playmate”— for you to spend an hour writing about so you can read it aloud at next month’s meeting. The eventual goal is to create a legacy collection of these stories, primarily written by seniors. You’ll also get a meal out of it: homemade soup and bread.
