This course introduces participants to the practice and theory of life writing. Life writing refers to the practice of writing for oneself, not specifically with the view for publication (though this is a possibility) but as a way of healing, growing, discovering, exploring, awakening creativity and solving problems. It encompasses the keeping of journals, diaries, memoirs, biography, stories, letter writing, travel writing and fiction based on personal experience.
While the workshop will explore the therapeutic value of writing, it will also look at other aspects of writing such as claiming one's own voice, telling one's story, discovering one's strength and joyfulness.
This workshop is for anyone who would like to explore their own thoughts & emotions through writing. No previous experience in writing necessary, the focus is on self expression, not writing technique or literary quality.
