Writing Hard Stories

Ernest Hemingway famously said, “Write hard and clear about what hurts.” His words support the notion that writing about difficult life circumstances such as illness, death, trauma, or family dysfunction can help us understand them in a more profound way. The process of re-entering those memories, taking them apart, and then putting them back together again on our own terms, can transform them into something meaningful, perhaps even beautiful, for both writer and reader.

This workshop will provide a compassionate and supportive space for participants to engage in reading and writing exercises that begin peeling back the layers of their experiences and help them uncover the powerful stories they have to tell.

Open to any genre. Cost is $170. Class size limited
