Do you have a story to tell? Are you looking for a writing class?
Join the Cedar Chips at The Cedars of Dexter. Our writing group meets on Wednesdays, 1-4 pm. Check the Calendar page for exact dates and times. Last year, four writers in this group got published.
The Inside Story
We all have inside stories, stories that tell who we are, where we came from, the people we knew, the places we frequented, the things we did, the great events we witnessed, the funny and tragic things that happened along the way, the dramatic events that defined our lives, the paths that we could have taken, but didn’t.
Those are the moments that shaped our destiny—and, often, the destiny of others.
As poet James Russell Lowell said, “It’s not what we give, but what we share, for the gift without the giver is bare.” The greatest gift we can offer our family, friends, and future generations is the gift of ourselves. To do that, we need to tell and preserve our special stories so children and grandchildren, neighbors and future historians will understand what it was like to be us, in our unique time and place. A time and place that no longer exist.
