About the Series » Journaling in the Library

Journaling IMG_0623 SMThe Journaling in the Library group meets monthly in the Portland Room. This is the Greater Portland region’s only writing group dedicated to journal and memoir writing, and welcomes all ages and manual writing media. Journaling encourages creative, reflective writing- along with reading, extending the Library’s literacy mission.

Journaling 4633 SMJournaling in the Library makes use of autobiographic and historic elements in PPL’s collections: this includes memoirs, archives, journalism, letter correspondence, and the history of writing in material culture.

The format is similar to many other writing groups, though focused on journaling: using assigned prompts for written exploration. Participants will have opportunities to cultivate and read their writing, with the support of the community that comprises the group.

Telling Room Aug 2014dJournaling will commence on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, 5:30pm-7pm, in the Portland Room.
