Wish you could keep a journal full of your life’s adventures? Want to tell veteran’s stories? If you know you need to record your stories or the stories of your church or school but procrastinate not knowing if you have the art of telling the story, the Jennings County Writing Workshop is for you. It’s a short one day workshop with author David Griffin for the express purpose of exploring how to write your stories.
