Put pen to paper—or fingers to the keyboard—in this writing workshop with master memoirist Beverly Donofrio.
Donofrio believes that writing heals. Writing exercises are designed to stimulate memories, which we learn to craft into compelling stories. It’s in the revising, in the application of craft—scene writing, using specificity and reflection, moving around in time—that we reach deeper meaning, insight and understanding, compassion for ourselves and others—and ultimately transformation.
Through in-class writing exercises, overnight assignments, and sharing our work, we not only learn craft but also develop camaraderie and have fun. We may even find that what made us rage and cry now makes us laugh.
Throughout the workshop we engage in an ongoing discussion of the writing life and how to sustain it after we return home.
