Anchorage Remembers: Centennial memoir project

The Anchorage Centennial Advisory Committee has designated Anchorage Remembers as an official Anchorage Centennial event! The purpose of this 49 Writers project is to help local residents, including senior citizens, to transform their memories into compelling poetry and prose as a means of documenting their experiences in Anchorage while engaging in meaningful artistic activity that enriches their lives. 

In the latter half of 2013, 49 writers will begin offering special memoir writing workshops to Anchorage residents. In 2014, we will call for submissions to an Anchorage Remembers anthology to be published and distributed in spring 2015.

If you’d like to volunteer to assist with this project, please contact us. We're also seeking sponsors so that we can offer the workshops to potential memoirists free of charge. If you would like to contribute, contact us for more information.
