Program Details

Everything in your life, from the mundane to the extraordinary, is a story waiting to be told. This workshop is an invitation for you to discover your own unique and powerful story. Michel de Montaigne, the great personal essayist, said, “Every man has within himself the entire human condition.” The intention of this program is for you to deeply explore your personal narrative.

Writing from your deepest source, you gain insight and self-understanding that can bring peace and healing. You then make the leap from page to stage, sharing your words orally and uncovering the power of story to transform your life and your listeners.

Through improvisation, writing exercises, and group discussion, you find your authentic voice, along with an honest, organic way to express your truth. Ann Randolph offers a supportive, fun, and dynamic space in which to create. All levels are welcome in this workshop designed for those seeking to explore personal essay, memoir, solo performance, or the sacred practice of journaling.
