The focus of this six week workshop is not on reliving traumatic events, but on using the complex experiences of living as content for writing. We will approach the material, ourselves and each other with gentleness, curiousity and compassion. We will use the AWA writing method to process and explore painful events, while improving our writing craft around intense material. The emphasis is on generating new writing, rather than critiquing or editing existing work, and the atmosphere is one of supportive exploration. Whether you are a seasoned writer or someone who has never written before, this workshop is for you..

Dates: Six weeks starting October 16 2023

Sliding scale:I have a critique of capitalism and socioeconomic inequity. If your income has suffered because of Covid, capitalism, racism, sexism, disability, transgenerational poverty or other forms of economic oppression, if you are a full-time student, if you are a starving artist, or if you work with refugees, let me know and we will work something out. If you can pay more and would like to subsidize someone who cannot afford to come that is also welcome.
