Over the last few years the Manitoba Association of Senior Centres has partnered with Joanne Klassen the founder of Heartspace to train facilitators to bring Discover Yourself Through Life Writing courses to seniors centres across Manitoba.

Story authors Sandra Bater and Astrid Schuhmann both do an excellent job and we are thrilled that their efforts were highlighted in this issue.
