Improve your wellbeing and Write Your Life’s Journey in a three-session workshop led by retired English professor Lawrence Owen. The workshops take place October 16, 23 and 30, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in the Main Library’s Multipurpose Room, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
Previously a professor at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota, Lawrence Owen uses his 33 years of teaching experience to help you write about your life. During this workshop’s three meetings, he leads participants through simple writing assignments designed to give family and friends a glimpse into their lives and who they are. The workshops are held on three consecutive Fridays and work best if one attends all three meetings. Following his retirement, Lawrence Owen continued teaching writing workshops for senior citizens in Arkansas and Minnesota. He now lives in Santa Monica.
