THE TALES WE WERE TOLD • A WRITING WORKSHOP


Workshop Description

We think we tell stories, but stories often tell us, tell us to love or to hate, to see or to be blind. Often, too often, stories saddle us, ride us, whip us onward, tell us what to do and we do it without questioning.
- Rebecca Solnit

What stories have shaped our sense of self? Do they mirror, distort or enhance our understanding of the people we've become?

In this six-session workshop, we will look back at some stories from our childhood. How have the values  highlighted in these myths and fairy tales shaped us? What stories do we need now--and how will we write them?
