Writing from Life Experience
Writing from Life Experience engages elders from all writing backgrounds in creative and reflective writing based on their life stories. Using a writing studio format, the program strives to develop a growing community of elder writers.
Each year, the program culminates with a public reading designed to share the stories with the greater public. For the last 20 years ESTA has worked collaboratively with Morningside Retirement Health Services (MRHS) to bring "Get Your Words Worth" to their community.

The participating seniors at MRHS continue to share their stories through their blog, which shares the same name, as an avenue to bring their writing to the greater public. Follow this link to read their amazing stories.
