Creative Writing for Seniors


Mar 23, 2017 to Apr 13, 2017
04:00 PM until 05:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Thursday.


The Hudson Area Library and the City of Hudson Senior Center present Creative Writing for Seniors, a 4-week creative writing class for seniors beginning Thursday, March 23 from 4 – 5:30pm.


This free class is taught by author, artist, educator, and social activist Maureen McNeil.  McNeil has created writing programs for NYC public school students, US prisoners, seniors, veterans, and families of 9/11 victims.  She believes that everyone’s story is needed to help solve the problems of the world.


The class will focus on discovering the power of the inner self through the practice of daily writing. Memories, sensory observation, dreams, autobiography, fiction and poetry will be explored.   Each week McNeil will share the work of one inspiring writer who broke through social barriers and connected with the community.  Seniors will be asked to share a selection of their work.  All levels of writers are welcome. A final celebration will be held in the library. 


Registration is on a first come/first serve basis. Please visit the front desk at the Hudson Area Library, or call 518.828.1792 x101 to sign up.


Free and open to the public.
