Benedictines in every age try to save what might otherwise be discarded or devalued by a throw-away society. In a community of writers, we will gather up knowledge, hard-won wisdom, and the gifts our lives have given us. We will explore their meaning for us and for future generations of readers. We will experiment with several ways of putting those experiences into words that will reach across the generations (memoir, letters, poems, hybrid forms, etc.). We will read and respond to each other’s writing.
