with Susie Risho
executive director of StoryKeepers
Risho inspires and instructs people to find and keep their own, or their loved ones’ stories. She guides and ignites participants’ memories to recall unique and common experiences, which can model how they or another person will come upon their own memories. There are opportunities for sharing orally as well as various writing experiences, including developing skills in organizing, memory prompting, automatic writing, photo-journaling, and using historical fiction. Participants can gain knowledge and confidence to actually capture real life stories.
