Supporting Your … ‘Real Life’ Stories
20 July @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$35 – $50
Many people want to write their personal stories but hold back because of fear of writing about private matters, fear they will be judged, and fear of writing about other people. It’s such a shame because storytelling is a powerful way to find meaning and connect with others.
This workshop will cover the many good reasons for writing about our memories and lives, and how to conquer the fears that prevent us from doing it. Participants will also learn how to write a vivid picture of personal experiences so that the reader feels they are there.
During the workshop, participants will write short exercises to a couple of prompts. You will also look at how to draw a unique meaning from these experiences, so the story will remain with the reader long after they’ve read it.
