“What a wonderful use of my scholarship funds!” That thought passed through my mind halfway through the first session of my Porch class, “You Are the Protagonist; Memory & Memoir,” with Sheree Greer. In between discussion, sharing, writing, and laughing, I found an environment in which to learn and grow both as a writer and, much to my surprise, as a person. And to think I owe this great opportunity to the COVID pandemic and The Porch’s switch to virtual classes! I hope the online classes will remain a permanent part of the Porch offerings so those of us outside of the Nashville area can continue to participate.
