Creative Writing with Maureen McNeil

We are proud to present in collaboration with the City of Hudson Senior Center Creative Writing For Seniors, a 4-week class beginning Thursday, September 14, 28, October 12, & 26 2:30 – 4pm.  

Taught by author, artist, educator, and social activist Maureen McNeil. McNeil has created writing programs for NYC public school students, US prisoners, seniors, and veterans, and families of 9/11 victims.  She believes that everyone’s story is needed to help solve the problems of the world

The class will focus on discovering the power of the inner self through the practice of daily writing. Memories, sensory observation, dreams, autobiography, fiction and poetry will be explored.   Each week McNeil will share the work of one inspiring writer who broke through social barriers and connected with the community.  Seniors will be asked to share a selection of their work.  All levels of writers are welcome. A final celebration will be held in the library.  

This class is offered in collaboration with the City of Hudson Senior Center and is made possible in part by funds from Mid-Hudson Library System. The class is free and open to the public and is wheelchair accessible. Registration is limited and is on a first come/first serve basis.
