The Marathon County Historical Society continues to encourage writing personal stories
The Marathon County Historical Society continues to encourage people to write their personal stories by offering a structured writing class.
A Few Choice Words: A Writers Workshop for Preserving Memories will be offered again in March. This class will both be a stand-alone workshop for new participants, and will build on skills learned in January and February. New writing students are welcome to attend. The next sessions will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, March 20, and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 23. The same content will be covered in both time slots. The workshops are led by Victoria Lindsay, a professional educator and writer. The fee is $20 per person. Participants should register in advance to receive a list of items to bring to class.
Our related exhibit, Our Stories: The History of Marathon County, shows the importance of the everyday lives of ordinary people who lived, worked and played in our area. Everyone’s story contributes to the vibrancy of the community. This exhibit is free and open to the public anytime during the Historical Society’s regular business hours, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. We are closed Mondays and holidays.
Whether you are an older person who wants to preserve memories for posterity, or you are a younger person who wants to collect those stories from a loved one, consider attending A Few Choice Words: A Writers Workshop for Preserving Memories.
