In this eight-week course, learn how to search, find and save images from HPL's Local History and Archives website. Then, write a story or recollection inspired by a selected image.
Writing Through Time: Older Adult Digital Storytelling provides digital instruction and online social connection. Participants learn how to view and save historic images from the Hamilton Public Library's Local History and Archives. Participants use these images as the inspiration for a fiction or non-fiction writing project.
Senior adults (ages 55+) are welcome to register for Writing Through Time. Seniors are paired with undergraduate university students to learn technology skills and share stories. This platform allows stories to be shared with group members.
Register by January 18.
Please contact Student Coordinator Nadia Lana if you need assistance with registration or have questions about this platform or the project.
This program is offered in partnership with McMaster University Reading Lab, the McMaster University Seniors Computer Lab Project and Hamilton Public Library.
