Some people share their days of old at family gatherings. An organization serving northwest Illinois counties is offering those residents a chance to document this history.

The University of Illinois Extension is offering “Share Your Life Story: A Writing Series” workshops starting this month. Sessions take place in different locations during the spring and fall. 

Karla Belzer is the family life educator with the Extension. She said documenting your own stories is not just for loved ones.

WNIJ is pleased to be a part of the new live storytelling series at Conveyor in Rockford. This Friday, the theme is Independence Stories:  storytellers will weave tales of events that triggered them to assert their individualism. Divorce, adulthood, quitting that terrible job… what sparked YOUR independence?
