Writing class focuses on school memories

The river’s end bookstore in Oswego is offering the next in its series of programs for writers and those interested in becoming writers.

“School Days, School Ways: Recalling How and What We Learned” will explore the memories we have related to our school years: favorite teachers, best friends, embarrassing classroom moments, first crushes, etc.

The class begins Sept. 12.

“We have so much emotion stemming from our school years,” said Jim Farfaglia, writing instructor.

“It was a time when our minds and bodies were rapidly developing and we were learning new things — both in and out of the classroom,” he said. “By tapping into our school-related memories, we can discover how those years continue to inform who we are today — and we can have a little fun remembering.”

Class time will be spent participating in activities to rekindle memories and inspire writing.

Each week, the class will focus on a different aspect of school and participants will have the opportunity to share the stories they have written. No previous writing experience is necessary.

The class will be held at the bookstore, West Second and Bridge streets in Oswego, and will run for six Thursdays, beginning Sept. 12 and continuing through Oct. 17.

Class time will run from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. There is a fee for the class.
