Full Bio & Programs
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 unique and powerful story. Michel de Montaigne, the great personal essayist, said, “Every man has within himself the entire human condition.”
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 and deeply explore your personal narrative, within a supportive, fun, and dynamic creative environment. Experiment with personal essay, memoir, solo performance, and/or the practice of journaling. All levels are welcome.
