In the Beginning: Starting Our Stories and What Our Beginnings Might Reveal About Us

In the Beginning: Starting Our Stories and What Our Beginnings Might Reveal About Us

from 50.00

Every writer knows sometimes the hardest place to start is at the start. The blank page can feel like a bully.

 So how do we begin, and where do we begin? In this workshop, we will consider the importance of beginnings, of the narrative life and potential they hold. We will focus on our own life stories and wonder aloud together what others might hear by what we write and by what we do not write.

This workshop will have two short writing prompts in order to think of beginnings and structure. Most of the workshop will be discussion-based, and our focus will not be on craft so much as meaning and substance. All you will need is something to write with and on. You will not need to bring any pre-written material.
