My co-founder of Snapshot Stories Karlyn Coleman wrote a great blog post ("Preserving Memories") for the Loft Literary Center outlining the background of the class/program. She tells about her experience teaching seniors in Princeton, MN, and my experience with my grandfather. She says, "We saw how the sharing built community, created empathy, and helped the writers grow." This was the impetus for Snapshot Stories: to give people an outlet to write and share their stories.
We truly believe that stories are powerful. We're so excited to bring our energy and passion to people who want to tell theirs.
