SummaryThis two-hour workshop with Reagan Jackson offers a sequence of prompts designed to help you remember, discern, and capture your story.
DescriptionEvery day is another story. The tapestry of our lives is woven together with stories of family, friends, communities, challenges, traditions, love, adventure, missed opportunities and paths less traveled. If you could leave behind one story from your life like a time capsule to be explored by future generations, what would be your legacy? This two-hour workshop engages participants in a sequence of prompts designed to help you remember, discern and, most importantly, capture your story in writing.
