Writers, Young and Old, Share Experiences (1997)

This is a collection of stories by members of Seniors' Writing Circles and Fundamental Level Students, College of New Caledonia, Prince George, British Columbia. The Prince George Seniors' Writing Circles began in September 1996 as the result of a cost-shared government grant. Behind the walls of the many senior residences and activity centres in Prince George, is a wealth of untapped historical experience. This is the first time these seniors have had the opportunity to join these intellectually stimulating circles through which they have developed and used the literacy skills necessary to put their experiences on paper.

It took great courage and determination for all the authors in this book to overcome feelings of "I can't write...I have nothing of importance to say". Through sharing ideas and experiences orally, these feelings changed. The writing began! It will continue!
