Write Your Own Story

This is a fun program! The facilitator will give participants a set of words that they will need to include within their stories.

The stories are usually around three paragraphs. When we read each of ours out loud, the creativity speaks volumes.

You're guaranteed to be amazed at how unique each person's story is, even while using the same list of words. Hope you can join!
