Resource id #4
from memory to memoir
This program provides a creative approach to the writing of memoirs. It offers opportunities to reclaim the most important moments of your life and transform them into intimate narratives. The intensive journal-writing process employed during this meditative, inwardly-focused workshop stimulates both memory and creativity.
The memoirs participants write in this program represent the heart of their life stories. There are many good reasons to learn to write them:
“After spending a weekend recently in one of Ellery’s journaling programs, my sense of respect and appreciation for this wise Haven elder was firmly in place. In a very few days he offered a clearer window into my knowing of myself through pause, reflection and expression with pen to paper. He did this simply by presenting opportunity in an open spirit of possibility, without judgment or criticism. This is indeed the greatest gift of elder wisdom. And I believe this is the gift of Ellery Littleton.” Ernie McNally – 2013
Ellery Littleton’s most recent book – HUMMINGBIRD TATTOO – a collection of erotic haiku – was nominated for an American Haiku Foundation “Touchstone Distinguished Book Award” for 2011. It is available in the Haven gift shop.

You created a real sense of safety, respect, delight even, for each person's creative voice. I loved the exercises and the variety of places they landed me up in myself, and I was amazed at the quantity and quality of the writing we produced as a group. You have created a wonderful space where people can explore their heartfelt truths.
