Imagine your tale, touching others.

You want to write because you think you have something to say. Guess what? You do. Your stories aren’t meaningful just to you; they can powerfully affect your readers as well. Of course, this doesn’t happen automatically; we’ve all listened to or read other people’s anecdotes that bore us, that have no bearing on our lives. And yet as humans we are all connected. We differ, but we share universal passions, sorrows, yearnings, and joys. Discovering the thread that links us all will make our writing light up another person’s mind—and heart. And mastering craft, authenticity, and voice will lead us to that thread.

This workshop explores these crucial elements of personal writing—craft, authenticity, and voice—via lecture, example, practice, and feedback. The workshop is open to all levels of writers. Four Saturdays: March. 2, 9, 16, 23, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
