Writing our real-life stories sounds easy and even enjoyable until we sit down with a sheet of paper and feel immediately stuck. Where do I start? Can I write that about my mother, my kids, my job? How do I approach family secrets, abuses, taboos? What if I write my story and someone tells me I remembered it all wrong? We will take on the anxieties and fears around writing and provide you with tools to help turn down the noise and start writing your story.
This class will take place at Josephine Sculpture Park indoors and outdoors, as weather permits.
Registration Required: Maximum 8 Students
