Narrative writing is ultimately a quest for self-knowledge. Like good therapy, writing helps you rewrite the narrative of your life in a way that you can live with it. Most writers will confess that their writing consists primarily of listening to their inner voices and scribing what they hear. Powerful prose starts and ends with a strong narrative voice. We will employ the skills of reflection, syntax, re-writing, and editing to sharpen your words and strengthen your writing style. The workshop on Sunday includes a presentation on ‘How to Publish’ with publishing expert Joel Friedlander.
