Have you ever wished to write a memoir? To chronicle stories of your youth or meaningful experiences? To leave a legacy for your descendants? The Memory Keepers have found the secret. After taking a Seniors College Writing from Life course facilitated by Dianne Hicks Morrow, class members Leona Dalton, Janet Fraser, Margaret Fitzpatrick, Donna Gallant, Kaye Larkin, Ann MacKinley, and Patricia Manning have continued writing together for fifteen years. This is their first anthology.

They meet regularly to write, read, and share memories, like finding buried treasure on PEI or a stormy day supper prepared by a 12 year old. Or why prunes are a reminder of Uncle Bruce. Or what happened at the Canadian border. The anthology includes 24 short stories and poems.

The book also contains a clear, practical guide to organizing a writing group and keeping track of your ideas—even if you are in the garden and your hands are dirty.

Write! Even If Your Hands Are Dirty is available online at Amazon. All book proceeds will go to to a local non-profit organization. The first year donation will go to Blooming House.
