"Write Your Story"

Join us for a new virtual program to celebrate the special connection between grandparents and grandchildren. “Write Your Story,” was created to get us all to write, talk, connect and share. Here’s how it works:

Twice a week, between Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, you’ll take 10 minutes to journal a memory inspired by a writing prompt that we’ll email to you. Sample prompts could include: 

· Tell a story about one of YOUR grandparents
· The first time I saw "my baby" holding their baby...
· The house I grew up in...

To participate, please submit your name, email address and zip code below this form. You will then receive an email twice a week, between May 11- June 19, with a writing prompt. Open the prompt, set your timer for 10 minutes, and GO! Word count of 250-400 recommended. 

 After each journal entry is complete, we invite you to submit your stories to JCC Chicago to be published on our website and shared with the community.

If you opt to submit content to JCC Chicago, you are agreeing that JCC Chicago can publish your writing and share it on social media.

Writings can be submitted to GGC@jccchicago.org.
