THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER STORY • A WRITING WORKSHOP


Workshop Description

“The world is made of stories, not atoms,” wrote Muriel Rukeyzer, and by the time we’ve lived a few decades, we all have a lot of stories to tell.

In this six-session workshop, we’ll look at our lives from a fresh perspective as we turn our own facts into short fiction in a variety of genres. (Was your first date a horror story or a fairy tale? Was your job search a mythic quest?) Let’s see what we come up with when we use the tools of the creative writer to re-envision our experience.

Bring a spirit of adventure and a sense of fun, and we’ll rewrite history!
