Creating from a place of authenticity & transformation

This writing workshop is for those particularly interested in non-fiction: the personal/political essay, memoir, oral storytelling, solo performance, and journalism. Writers in all genres at all levels are welcome.

In addition to writing and reading exercises, learning writing tips and techniques, and working on individual texts, we will examine our survival as artists & writers in a culture with a narrow definition of what is considered art, and what art and which artists receive societal validation and why. We will also discuss how to create meaningful art and work toward a creative economy.
