Writing in Later Life: Travel Memories- Session 1

Loading Events

Part of memoir writing is reflecting on travel experiences and how they have impacted our lives. We will discuss examples of writing reflective travel memories, reasons for writing them, and specific strategies.  Within each session, participants will respond to writing prompts and be invited to read their work aloud.

Participants are encouraged to take part in both sessions.

The group will be facilitated by Ellen Ryan, Gilbrea Senior Scholar and Professor Emeritus in McMaster University’s Department of Health, Aging and Society. Ellen’s research examines how to foster resilient aging through the decades –from the young old to the oldest old. Throughout her career, she has focused on ageism, disability, and life stories. She hosts the website: Writing, Aging and Spirit.
