Writing Your Truth
Saturday, March 20, 2021 $25
We’ll focus on writing deep, sometimes traumatic emotional truths and ways in which to decide how best to work with either subtlety or starkness when revealing difficult truths on the page. This class is aimed at both fiction and non-fiction authors who are looking to weave personal experience into the narrative in a way that is not self or community harming. We’ll explore successful examples in both fiction and non-fiction as case-studies on the journey to writing your truth and sharing it with the world in the vessel that best works for your story! This class allows time for Q&A. All participants will have access to download the recording and worksheets for a month after the class finishes. This class will be conducted over Zoom.
