  • Writing a Legacy Letter: A Zoom Workshop with Jay Sherwin (Zoom only)

    Jay Sherwin

    A legacy letter (also called an “ethical will”) is a written document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values, and transmit your thoughts to future generations. A legacy letter is not a formal legal document or a full-length memoir; it’s a brief personal statement, typically just a few pages. Writing one is a rewarding experience that creates an enduring gift for your family, friends, and loved ones.

    In this engaging Zoom workshop, Jay Sherwin will introduce the concept of legacy letters and help you craft your own legacy letter. It includes discussion and a few brief writing exercises. Sherwin will offer advice to help you complete your legacy letter, share it with loved ones and preserve it for future generations. The class will include the opportunity to share your work, ask questions, and get feedback. Sherwin’s program seeks to make this daunting task more accessible.

    Jay Sherwin has practiced law and served as a hospital chaplain. Drawing on those experiences, Jay created the Life Reflections Project to educate people about legacy letters and ethical wills; he now teaches classes and workshops on legacy writing and helps people create their own legacy documents. You can read more on Jay’s website at www.jaysherwin.com.

    This event will take place exclusively via Zoom. For more info or for Zoom links, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov.
