Plainfield Public Library Memoir Writing Club

What's Your Story?

The Memoir Writing Club offers members a comfortable forum for sharing stories of important events, friendships, and family history. Do you have memories that you would like to share? Come join the Plainfield Public Library's Memoir Writing Club. Before a session, participants write down their memories - creating a Memoir. During meetings, members share what they've written on a topic.  At the end of each meeting the group chooses an optional topic for the next session, but individual members are free to write about whatever inspires them.

Past meeting discussions have involved educational or school experiences, favorite places, growing up in Plainfield, holidays, games, reunions, travel, and more!
