A four-session writing workshop designed to help women age 55 and over document their lives will be offered on consecutive Thursdays in April at The Performing Arts Studio.  PAS is located at the historic Santa Fe Depot, 200 S. Jones Ave.

The workshop, taught by University of Oklahoma instructor Dana Loy, is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. April 1, 8, 15 and 22.

Designed for all levels of writers, the class provides participants with an opportunity to recall events in their lives, share memories with others in the group and document them in writing. At the end of the workshop, each participant takes home her collection of autobiographical writings. The writing is not or edited or prepared for publication.

“Writing taps into memory. In this class, women with rich life experiences can work on their life stories,” Loy said. “A lot of people would like to write about their lives but it’s hard to find the time. Through this workshop, we give ourselves that time and create a beautiful collection of written memories. Some are funny, some are historical and some touch your heart.”

Tuition is $75 per person and enrollment is limited to 18. The deadline for registering is March 30. To register by phone or to request a registration form, contact PAS at 307-9320 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
