It was a full class of hardworking students when the Magnolia Historical Society gave it’s 3rd annual Fall Writing Memoirs Workshop at the Magnolia Library last Saturday with published writers Monica Wooton, President, and Dale Forbus Hogle, Board Member, giving sources, helpful hints and professional guidance. Wooten says:
Classmates wrote, revised and re-wrote memories of their first bicycle in the 1920′s, conversation at the dinner tables of the 1940′s and moves across the country to Kent and Magnolia, Washington. The class was a four-hour session on how to write down your memories or preserve family history. Everyone participated by writing and critiquing the work. There were stories written that spanned a 1930′s southern country community celebration, high school life and the colorful cliques of the 1980′s-the New Wavers, Preppies and The Stoners, and the 1990′s years at O’Dea high school where you “entered as a boy and left as a man.”
