Session One Workshops
Write Like A Woman
Explore an alternative way of creating stories with the â€œliminal archâ€ as a means of finding authentic voice, experimenting and writing in ways and about topics that are considered taboo or irrelevant in mainstream literature and society.
Explore the details of how familial relationships generate (and/or create obstacles to) the development of our personal narratives. Begin by selecting an important foundational relationship to interrogate through writing and focused reading.
Using physical warm-ups and simple games from Interplay, Authentic Movement, and Intuitive Dance as well as writing prompts culled from Robert Bly's beautiful book, Leaping Poetry,, we'll access our body's innate wisdom and "leap" between the different brain centers as we write our stories and poems
