Litquake Elder Project | San Francisco Village


Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

This eight-part series is focused on common strategies to write and present poetry. Explore sound patterns, repetition, music, strategies of emphasis, and how reading our work aloud is unlike writing or reading alone. We will use examples of Spoken Word and traditional poetry reading. At the end of the series, there will be a printed anthology and a live reading.
Litquake sparks critical conversations and inspires writers and readers of all ages to celebrate the written word with diverse literary programming, interactive workshops, and a ten-day festival. The Litquake Elder Project consists of weekly generative writing and reading sessions combined with music, photographs, headlines, and hands-on creative exercises facilitated by professional teaching writers. Participants get to know each other in new ways that foster socialization and bonding. Creative projects and collaboration give way to conversations about life, art, and philosophy.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
