Story Circle Series

Ideal in retirement residences and seniors' groups, this popular series is featured in an article by repeat client, Chartwell Royalcliffe, and in Londoner news (jpg 288kb). Typically one hour monthly, story circles invite both oral storytelling on topics, and reading aloud any writing by participants. Distinct from these residential programs are Sandy's public workshops (pdf 141kb) and 1-to-1 consulting, too.

"Prompted me to write stories; my family appreciate • enjoy coming every month • love this session • very interesting, time flies • love people's stories of childhood • different views • so glad I joined." /residence retirees

"Residents adore Sandy... she listens, values their stories... caring professional... talented facilitator, writer... everyone's thrilled with her!" /SB, Programs Mgr.

Participants' works were inspired in Sandy's first story circle at the residence – run monthly since 2014. Plaques at an open house displayed 250-word stories, showcasing both the talents and vibrant programming in this residence.

Some works are composed as a group and uplift the community, tucked in as a surprise smile in Meals on Wheels, or in retirement home Christmas stockings. A grateful stranger: "That letter that came with meals-wheels made my day! Thanks."
