your love letter to the future • A WRITING WORKSHOP

Jean Sheppard offered this workshop in Fall 2020. It was a full class and several people asked if we would host it again.
We are pleased to offer this workshop as a special winter 5-week course. 
The workshop will take place on Zoom.

Workshop Description

In a legacy letter, we pass on and share our values, share our hopes for the coming years and offer our blessings to those we cherish. As the writer Rachel Freed once observed, "One day your descendants will hold this document in their hands and know who you were, how you lived and what you contributed to the world. This may be the most important writing you will ever do."

The thought-provoking activities in this five-session workshop help both new and experienced writers see with fresh eyes the value of the wisdom that comes from lived experience.
