Diving Into the Wreck: Writing about Loss, Trauma and other Difficult Subjects
April 6, 2019 | 1:30–4 p.m. | The Writer’s Center, Bethesda, Maryland
Have you wanted to write about subjects such as loss, shame and trauma but are unsure how to proceed? In this woman-only workshop, we’ll follow Adrienne Rich’s poem “Diving Into the Wreck” as a guide to use the tools of persona, voice and memory to mine the rich territory of our most deeply held experiences. By the end of this two session workshop, you will have generated material transforming emotionally charged experience into the beginnings of powerful essays, poems and memoir projects.
All levels. Enrollment limited to women and woman-identified persons.
