The Garden of Words: A Writing Workshop @ the Ashland Library *For Adults 18+

Friday, September 15, 2023

We're excited to start writing our stories - so we can share them with our kids, grandkids, friends, and family. We don't want to lose these stories to the elements of time so join us to put into writing your story or come to commune with other budding authors as we learn how to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard :).

Join Ashlander Lillian Breen in this wonderful opportunity to put your thoughts to paper with others who are so inclined. Each meeting Lillian will give you a prompt to start the juices flowing or, if you already have an idea, just come to write with friends. 

Come with your paper/pen/laptop and be ready to write and discuss your ideas (this part is optional, as we know stories can also be deeply personal). Feel free to bring your favorite non-alcoholic writing drink in a covered cup. 

About Lillian:

My name is Lillian Breen, a resident of Ashland for 17  ½ years. I’ve been a long time passionate, personal story writer who has been wanting to organize a personal story/poetry writing group for several years. I have 3 grown children, 5 grandchildren & a great-granddaughter. My love of water-color painting, at Ashland Senior Center, for 15 years has also unfolded during that time. Everyone has stories to unleash, in writing & sharing ~ this develops into a wonderful mini-community.

We will have pen/pencils with good erasers and paper on hand if you need. 

Registration is required for this program for each date you plan to attend.  Walk-ins will be allowed if the program is not full. 

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
