Elder Writing Online

About the Project

Downtown Oakland Senior Center


dt-oak-map

In this weekly session, made possible by a partnership with the City of Oakland, we offer examples of published writing that correlates with writing assignments meant to cover a theme, form, or technique. We then discuss and engage with the work before using a writing prompt to write and share work.


Virtual: Both classes begin at 12:30 PM.
