Guided Autobiography Group with Gloucester Writers Center

  • Join members of our community for a journey of personal exploration,
    writing, and community building as we:
    • leave a legacy for family members • facilitate life transitions
    • enhance personal growth • contribute to history • enjoy the
    thrill of self-discovery
    Guided autobiography is a fun and effective process for life review
    that combines autobiographical writing with small group experiences.
    Each week we will use prompting questions to jumpstart and organize our memories
    around a meaningful life theme. The weekly sessions also provide a
    safe space for sharing our work-in-progress, and participants will be
    asked to share two pages that they wrote during the previous week.
    Guided autobiography is especially powerful for those entering or
    wanting to enter a new phase of life, but everyone can benefit.

    This group will meet for ten Mondays Starting September 17 and ending on November 19 from 7-9 p.m. at the Maud / Olson Library at 108 East Main Street.
    Class cost: $250
    Minimum enrollment: 5

Pier 23

We had lunch at the “new” Pier 23 recently. Contrary to expectation, we each ordered a wrap. Stuffed with real chicken chunks, accompanied by strips of bacon….and the chipotle mayo was more chipotle than mayo which I loved. Friendly service, steady customer stream, varied menu…..we’ll be back!
