Short Stories
Join us to read and discuss a new selection of short stories. The short story is sometimes an under-appreciated art form. Characters must be established quickly and efficiently. The author must create tone, voice, style, atmosphere, point of view, and communicate an aspect of our human condition. Let’s see if the short stories we read meet the criteria.

Communicating With Self & Others - LW
We all communicate with ourselves silently through our thoughts. We
communicate with others through the verbal and non-verbal messages we send. This class focuses on increasing mindfulness and personal awareness regarding the messages we send others, and ourselves as well as ways in which to enhance communication skills. There will be didactic presentations designed to stimulate discussion as well as class exercises that provide the opportunity to practice newly acquired skills. A willingness to challenge your habitual communication style is not a prerequisite and may be an outcome. Class limit: 29   **LW Residents have priority
