Sunshine Place together with Prof. Oscar Peñaranda is bringing back one of the most

attended and well-loved workshops at Sunshine Place Online!

Writing a memoir helps you find your voice, tell your story, and reach out to others. When you start thinking about your memories and moments that make you feel young again, it makes you wonder: what is the legacy I’m leaving behind?

Through this Online Memoir Writing Workshop at Sunshine Place: Senior Recreation

Center, students will be able to learn how to find and channel their voice to be able to tell their story.
