Scholarships available for Life Writing Workshops with Edgar

Published 9:32 am Wednesday, June 5, 2013

A lifestyle journalist and storyteller for over 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.
