Group Description

The Senior Memoirs Writing Group meets at the Barns & Noble Bookstore in the East Gate Shopping Mall in Moorestown, NJ. We gather in the front of the store, at the far left as you enter ... near the windows. We read our memoirs on the third Wednesday of the month; 10:00 AM until noon. This is a friendly group of seniors who enjoy sharing experiences in a non critical environment.

Themes or topics are suggested on a monthly basis.
Future suggested themes:
2014:
AUG 20 -- IN THE ATTIC
SEP 17 -- GOOD PEOPLE
OCT 15 -- LEARNING THE HARD WAY
NOV 19 -- ANCESTORS
DEC 10 -- HOLIDAY SHOPPING
(*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS DECEMBER THE MEETING IS A WEEK EARLIER THAN OUR REGULAR 3rd WEDNESDAY MEETING DATE! THE DECEMBER WILL IS ON DECEMBER 10, 2014)

What do you do at meetings?
**** Members take turns reading a brief memoir they have written to the group. Then there may be a brief discussion if members have similar memories or experiences.

What level of writing skill is expected?
**** There are no expectations. Members write at all levels. The idea is simply to preserve and share our favorite memories.

How large is the group?
**** About 15 to 20 people attend.

Can I write on any topic?
**** We have a monthly suggested topic. You can write on any memorable topic.
Readings should be short. We recommend that it be no longer than two double spaced pages. This facilitates crisp writing and allows other writers to read their work.
Come and share your memories. Bring a friend who may not want to write or read, but would like to listen and enjoy the companionship of some very nice people.
