Essayists to Explore Resources of Aging for the Time of Pandemic

When a new world emerges from the coronavirus pandemic, what role will older adults have played in the transformation?

That’s one question a writing group will take up beginning May 20 as participants share reflections essential to the well-being of individuals and society.


“Aging for the Common Good” will engage a small group of older adults in exploring experiences of change, loss and discovery. Over six weeks, the group will consider the role of elder as scout, sage and storyteller in a time of crisis.


Sponsored by Sympara, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create just, inclusive and sustainable communities through sacred/civic spaces, the program will be built around the writing of short essays, which will be published by the award-winning website Senior Correspondent.


Daniel Pryfogle, founder of Senior Correspondent and cofounder and CEO of Sympara, will facilitate the writing group, which will meet via Zoom on Wednesdays from 4-5 p.m. Eastern.


The group is limited to 12 participants. There is no charge for participants. For inquiries or to sign up, contact Daniel Pryfogle at daniel@sympara.org.

In memory of Sympara cofounder Marcie "Sister Wildfire" Giarrizzo (1948-2019) and member Desmond Hoffmeister (1960-2016).
