Scholarships available for life writing workshops with Robin A. Edgar

Published 3:55 pm Friday, May 31, 2013

A lifestyle journalist and storyteller for more than 30 years, Edgar successfully shares her expertise in reminiscence writing at venues around the country. In North Carolina, she has conducted seminars at the prestigious John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, the Novello Festival in Charlotte, the Writer’s Workshop in Asheville, and the Lanier Library in Tryon.

“I am on a quest to help people discover the stories about individuals and incidents that shaped their lives,” says Edgar. “Similar to Jimmy Stewart’s character in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ when people reflect on their past, they see they have made a difference.”

In order to give participants full attention, the class size for Life Writing is limited to 10 participants. The fee for this weekend retreat includes five interactive sessions and a double-occupancy room for two nights with five meals. To register, contact Robin Edgar at
