ESL Learner Writing Workshop

February 25, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until March 4, 2023


We all have stories—happy stories, painful stories, deeply meaningful stories. In this class geared toward ESL learners, we’ll write our own stories so we can remember and honor our life experiences, and keep our stories alive for future generations. The four-week class will culminate in a public reading where we will share and celebrate our stories with our community. Hosted in partnership with StoryStudio Chicago‘s “Chicago Stories Project,” as part of the Stories Matter Foundation. Registration is required.

Location: Oak Terrace Elementary School, 240 Prairie Ave, Highwood, IL 60040
