In February 2021, CJE SeniorLife and Roseland Village community members embarked on a special four-week writing and storytelling workshop series led by Northlight Theatre teaching artists! In the first two workshops, participants generated and refined material through in-class writing prompts, discussion, and peer feedback. In the third workshop, they dove into the basics of storytelling and how to take writing from the page onto a stage. In the fourth and final workshop, writers refined their final pieces as all participants were invited to submit their pieces for inclusion in this final booklet to be shared in the community.
Below is the a booklet containing stories told by our workshop participants.
