When: Sat., July 30, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. 2011
Of all creatures on the planet, only humans evolve their societies through recorded cultural histories with myths, legends, yarns, anecdotes, family accounts, and tales, forms of narrative. Each of us has a story to tell, but how we tell it what makes that story valuable to other people. Join Jim McGarrah for a day of learning how to translate your memories into words. To register, visit www.indianawriters.org or call 317-255-0710.
