Workshop Overview

We don’t live in our lives. We live in the stories we tell about our lives. And we may not realize how our stories about difficult experiences are hurting us. This workshop will offer a series of poems, prompts, rituals and writing exercises designed to mine \"failures\" for wisdom and alchemy. We will explore ways to rewrite what hurt you into what eventually heals you. You’ll gain tools and strategies for writing as a transformational practice, and you’ll leave with several poems, essays or story starts (you choose) and one longer piece to return to on your own.

She believes writing can be a powerful transformational path for all of us.
