  Writing Workshop - Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum - Decorah IA

Logo of the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum

The Vesterheim Folk Art School in Decorah, Iowa, has once again invited Kathleen to present her popular Exploring Your Heritage—A Writing Sampler Weekend.

Cherished family stories can be preserved in many ways. This workshop will introduce you to several types of writing, including poetry, memoir, fiction, and creative nonfiction. You will enjoy a variety of short writing activities designed to help capture memories or explore what interests you most about your unique family, ethnic group, or community heritage.

Inspired by Vesterheim’s rich collections and whatever personal memories or heirlooms you wish to explore, you will leave with drafts of several poems, character sketches, essays, and short stories.

The weekend's activities begin Friday evening, April 24th, and run through late afternoon Sunday the 26th. Prior registration and payment of a fee is required. The number of people who can participate is strictly limited in order to provide a quality experience for each person. To register and pay, please click HERE.

NOTE: Kathleen's workshop has filled! There is a waiting list. For details contact the Folk School at (563) 382-9681.
