Event Description

Eight 2.5 hour sessions January 31st-March 21st Thursday Afternoons, Caetani Centre Library 2 – 4:30pm Cost: $265 In this series we’ll mix live writing, discussion and feedback into our sessions. As we identify themes, patterns and throughlines in your life story you’ll write, and write with delight, astonishment and pleasure. You’ll work on bringing your stories out of your head and memory and onto the paper in a compelling way. Plenty of support and tips to break through writer’s block will be shared, and you’ll finish with several short personal stories written, and confidence that you can keep going. This course is open to beginners as well as writers and memoirists who are experienced, but want some companionship and community on the writing path. Your instructor Janelle Hardy teaches transformational memoir-writing online and in person, and is also a writer/artist/healing arts bodyworker with a great deal of experience guiding people through the creative and writing process as well as taking a trauma-informed approach to and the inevitable healing and personal growth that arises working with our life stories.
