How to Write Your Own Obituary

October 3, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Why let others tell the story of your life when you know the material intimately? Best of all, you can leave out the unsavory bits and showcase only the highlights! All kidding aside, a well-written obituary can be a lasting testimony to those we leave behind, a record of personal history, a legacy to those we cherish in our own “voice.” Learn the basics of writing a newspaper obituary, read some outstanding examples and write your own, before it’s too late. Class meets Tuesdays, 10/3 – 10/10, 6:30pm to 8:00pm.  Course fee: $50–not eligible for discounts.  To reserve your seat visit TCU Extended Education.
