You have stories. Your family has stories. Some are humorous, some are inspiring, and one or two may just be tall tales. Only you can write these stories and only you can protect them from being lost. You may even want to publish a book. Learn self-reflection and writing exercises that will help you write your own engaging recollections in full detail, as well as techniques for interviewing family and friends. Explore various format options to share with family, friends or the world. By the end of this class, you'll have a starter collection of stories and the tools and inspiration to write more.
“I attended the Memoir and Family History course taught by Laura Ehrke. Each class provided writing inspirations which I know I needed. She took us through a very structured methodology of teaching us how to approach writing our family histories. She is extremely encouraging and allowed us all to share what our approaches were and how the work was being developed. She encouraged feedback and provided guidance when we got stuck. I am keeping in touch with Laura for her next courses at Harper College because I definitely want to be on the roster!”
“I just finished the class at Harper College - Write Your Family’s Story, taught by a great teacher, Laura E. -FUN, Informative, Great Lectures(talks) - makes you really sit back and think. Will sign up for her next Writing Classes that she teaches. Wish the class was another week or two longer -Now to get started on my family’s unique and strange history.”
Make every day count. Discover your passions. Advance your career. Play and learn.
I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
