WELCOME TO THE SRC!

Are you interested in a virtual story writing and sharing group?

Do you enjoy writing? Are you looking for a new way to spend your time while you’re home during the pandemic? Do you enjoy reminiscing, hearing stories, and sharing memories with others?

Not only does bringing pen to paper hold a certain special joy, but writing down or telling stories is considered one of the best ways to self-reflect upon our journeys, reminisce on our memories, connect with others, and keep our brains healthy and active. 

We’re starting a virtual storytelling groupHere’s how it would work: 

  • Every other week, members would receive a writing prompt via email. 
  • You would have 2 weeks to answer the prompts and write your story.
  • Then, we would join together as a group via Zoom to share our stories with each other and let the conversation flow from there!

Grab a mug of your favorite warm beverage and virtually meet with your friends (or soon to be friends) to share stories, learn more about ourselves and each other, practice your writing skills, and simply enjoy each other’s company!

 

If this is something that you would be interested in, please email Liz Wynne at lizwynne@srcnj.org and include your preferred meeting time (see options below). Meetings are planned to begin the third week of February.

Zoom meeting options would be either:

  • Every other Monday at 4 PM
  • Every other Tuesday at 12 PM
  • Every other Tuesday at 1 PM
  • Every other Tuesday at 2 PM
