Stories of Home: Neighborhood Writing Circles

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on September 21, 2017


Stories from Home


Here’s a post from the Facebook page of Women Writing for a Change, Jacksonville:

“Please join Women Writing for a Change, Jacksonville for a new program in collaboration with Riverside Avondale Preservation: Stories of Home: Neighborhood Writing Circles.

Every house tells a story, but historic homes and historic communities have a long history of stories to choose from. What’s the story of your home? What do you know about it’s place in the community? What stories have occurred within your home or in your neighborhood that we might enjoy hearing about? What makes your home unique and special? Please tell us!

We write these stories not only for ourselves and our families, but also for the community at large. The stories of our historic homes and neighborhoods are rich and the meaning of home is deep. Please come and share your story.

You do not have to be a professional writer to participate. All levels of writers are welcome. You can expect an easy, guided process to help you tell your story and share it with your friends and neighbors if you choose.

Historic homes belong not just to ourselves, but are part of the fabric of the community. Let’s begin documenting our stories of home in Riverside/Avondale and enrich everyone’s lives.
