Mining Memories: A Multiple Genre Workshop on Ancestry Saturday afternoon, Sep 24, 10am-1pm -- (In-Person)

This is a workshop for all skill levels and writers of poetry, fiction or nonfiction. We will generate new material by mining the memories of our lives. Everyone has within them automatic stories, experiences that haunt them and won't let go. What do we tell? What do we keep to ourselves? We will write toward a balance of the sacred and the memorable. Each participant will leave the workshop with the impression of a new essay, poem, or short story--one that is deeply felt--ready to be crafted. Crystal Wilkinson leads this workshop, hosted by Lisa Rocklin.

Two Tuition Levels: $50 and $25. Open to All Genders 16+.
Masks are required and will be available at the workshop.


These programs are made possible by a grant from The Harris Family Fund.
