UPCOMING special events: SEPTEMBER 2017


a FREE creative writing workshop
led by Zee Zahava

Saturday, September 16
2- 4 p.m.
The History Center of Tompkins County
401 E. State Street, Ithaca NY

"PRECIOUS POSSESSIONS"  is designed to offer a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment for writing and sharing.

Bring a Precious Possession from home — a photo or object. Suggestion: Choose something that connects you to previous generations; it might be something that holds personal or historic significance for you or your family.

We’ll use the objects we bring as the “spark” for our writing. Then we will share what we have written with one another.

Enrollment is limited to 15 people
