Everyone is a writer. You are a writer. We are all connected to one another and to the mystery at the heart of the universe through our marvelous ability to create words. Our words may be the best gifts we have to give. This day-long workshop will allow you to delve into your memories to produce your own unique voice and story.
Learn 8 ways to transform stories that you have already written, or, are planning to capture. We will explore Emotional Truth vs. Factual Truth and how that can make (or break) a story. What is your story really about? Recognize how to avoid the predictable, and see the universal, in the particulars of your own story. The day will end with a glass of Washington wine by the fire and a discussion on memoir and how to tell your story.
