Happy New Year! To start off 2015, I’ve decided to offer creative writing classes to seniors in New York City where I live. Seniors have so much life experience and many stories to tell. Perhaps a six -week class in short story writing would be ideal to get some of them started on those stories they have been waiting to tell. There are many senior centers in the city that would appreciate cost-free classes for their residents or day clients. The cost I would incur would be minimal: just copying a few handouts. My time would be on a volunteer basis. The participants would bring pen, paper, and their imagination, ready to create new life and new worlds.
