All people have a story and somewhere inside them they have the desire to tell it. Many seniors have never had the opportunity to tell their stories and I relish and cherish the opportunity to help them succeed in writing their stories. I have taught creative writing for almost 20 years to every age and population. I am also an instructor to graduate student writers who are interested in teaching creative writing. I have taught older adults for more than ten years in Library systems and senior homes all over the country.
