2023 Summer Workshops
How do we free ourselves from what we think we’re supposed to be writing, and head for the sometimes scary—and always far more interesting—territory of messy experience and complex emotion? In this generative workshop, we’ll work from prompts suggested by our own lives and experiences, finding rich new resources to draw on for future work.
Please bring a notebook, and a few photographs of personal significance.
