Writing Womanhood

ID : 6195   
« back to classes page
Women live their lives in chapters—from girlhood to grand-parenting. Learn how to write from the text of your own life in this inspirational and experiential writing workshop for women of all ages and writers at all stages. As your guide and muse, Lisa will inspire you to get started and empower you to keep going. She will show you how to enrich your life by integrating the practice of writing—and the persona of a writer—into your daily rhythms.

Each week we will explore a different “chapter” in our lives. We will use sketches, objects, and storytelling to warm up for writing, and impromptu “writing starts” to give us a clear set of footprints onto the blank page. Our focus is not on product but rather on the practice of writing in a notebook every day - two pages or 15 minutes. As we mine our memories, and the moment, for material to write about, we will throw away the rules that bind our imagination, silence the critical inner voices that stifle our creativity, and discover how to carve out the time and space for writing. By the end of six weeks, you will have in hand the beginnings of several chapters from your own story of womanhood, and you will know the wisdom that comes from exchanging stories with women at different chapters in their lives.
