QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Warren County Historical Society will be hosting free memoir writing classes in November, hoping to provide content for an upcoming book, “Warren County Voices,” a book of recollections. Those interested can register by answering the questionnaire provided below, and emailing your response to esantasiero@gmail.com and execdir@wcnyhs.org.

The classes will be held on Saturdays, November 12, 19, and 26 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The classes will take a look at crafting memories into narratives, and lead you through a process of writing, reflecting on, and shaping details into a finished piece. Ellen Santasiero will teach the classes, a writer, whose work has appeared in several published works. She is also a teacher, and a Queensbury resident. Santasiero holds a BA from the University at Albany, and an MFA from Bennington College.
