Monday, Dec. 3rd * 630-830 pm * $10

**We will start promptly at 630**

Pre-registration is required BY NOVEMBER 27. (Space is limited to 16 people.)

Tea/juice and lights snacks will be provided

Please bring a journal and pen or a laptop or other device you can write on

Wifi is available

During the workshop, we will:
-Learn about the history of obits and the current state of obits
-Share and read fun, moving, or unique obits. If you want to bring an obit to share, please do!
-Write our own obits (I'll provides some guided writing exercises as well as time for free writing)
-Rewrite our obits (optional -- what do we wish they said?)
-Share our obits/rewritten obits and discuss how writing our own obit helps us reflect on our lives and our legacies and perhaps inspire us to reprioritize our lives in an effort to live more fully. Can we hold on to these obits for a year (or more) and revisit them as a way to see how we have changed? Sharing is always optional!
