Two Summer Writing Workshops

Monday, May 9, 2016


July 12 - Sept 6
8 Tuesdays, 10am-1pm
Location: SF Valley (Encino)

For full details, visit:

This 8-week workshop invites you to explore the restorative power of writing as we unravel defining events in our lives and our interpretations of them. Each participant begins by choosing a story to tell. We then devote ourselves to uncovering, deepening and shaping our narratives, giving them structure and infusing them with clarity. The goal is to complete a draft of your healing story, and in the process, also discover the transformative nature of storytelling and bearing witness to the stories of others.

This 8-week workshop is designed to guide you in developing, writing and completing a short memoir piece or personal essay. Through specific tools and creative techniques, you will learn the building blocks of memoir that will support you in crafting a piece that is mined and sourced from your innermost truth. The small group environment offers a safe, dynamic space where your most transcendent work can emerge.

For the final session, Deborah Lott will be visiting as a guest author and teacher to listen to the completed works and offer her feedback on where they might find a home in the marketplace.
