Aurora aimed to work with the elderly population of the Greenville community. To do this, Aurora focused on expanding an already existing project, Living Words, which works with the aged population in Spartanburg and introduces them to the art of creative writing through writing seminars and social gatherings.

These events aim to meet both the social and cognitive needs of the elderly. Aurora added a youth dimension to Living Words by recruiting high school students from the Greenville area to serve as teachers.

Aurora members began their weekly sessions with Living Words on February 16, 2012.
