Writing Your Family Stories
Author Audrey Atkins will share how to turn your life’s stories into works of art. Creative nonfiction is defined as “true stories, well told,” and in this Zoom session you’ll learn about the art of writing your true stories as well as the craft of establishing voice, theme, mood, character, and place.
Born in the Oil Capital of Alabama, Citronelle, Audrey Atkins made her way to Birmingham by way of the University of Montevallo, where she earned a B.A. in English. During the day, she is the Director of Community Engagement at WBHM 90.3, Public Radio for the Heart of Alabama. But as a raconteur at heart, she has always loved telling stories and in 2018 published They Call Me Orange Juice, a collection of essays about growing up and living in the South. For nearly 20 years, she has been a freelance writer and has had her stories and articles published in magazines such as Birmingham Magazine and Mobile Bay Monthly, online through Alabama Media Group’s popular It’s a Southern Thing, and as part of The Bitter Southerner’s Folklore Project. And for almost a decade. Audrey has shared her thoughts on everything from Southern sayings to gumbo to foundation garments at her blog Folkways Nowadays.

Aldridge Gardens is a 30-acre woodland garden featuring hydrangeas nestled in the heart of Hoover.

He and his wife Kay conveyed the property to the city of Hoover in 1997. Complete with a six-acre lake and walking trail, Aldridge Gardens is laden with many varieties of hydrangeas, camellias and other native Alabama plants. Come walk the gardens with us. Reservation required. 20-person max. Meet at the Gardens. For more information contact Julie Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
