WRITE FOR YOUR LIFE
Developing a Strong Narrative Voice
A Writers' Intensive
Come and jumpstart your writing in Bali
with Jeremiah Abrams
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.
Whether you are a beginner or are writing a dissertation or a novel, the power of your prose starts and ends with a strong narrative voice. We will employ the skills of reflection, re-writing, syntax and editing to sharpen your words and strengthen your writing style and confidence in your voice.
The workshop begins with a shamanic journey to draw forward your authentic voice. We’ll then turn to writing, rewriting, free writing, editing, reading aloud, feedback and discussion. This event will include a presentation on ’How to Publish.
The workshop will meet 4-5 hours per day and we’ll take generous time to relax with yoga and ventures out to experience the wonders of Bali.
This event is preceded by the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, October 5-9.see link for full details.
