Writing is not about putting words down on paper so much as it's a process of feeling, remembering, and shaping our experience. Unlocking Your Stories is a workshop in developing our awareness of those inner and outer processes of thinking, feeling, knowing and sensing that give birth to stories.

Storytelling is probably the oldest art form, and although it must have been preceded by the development of speech, dreams came before verbal storytelling. In writing stories, we can draw on the fluidity and inventiveness of dreams to create an experience for ourselves, our listeners, and readers. A group is both your audience and your team of players.

In Unlocking Your Stories, we get together to explore techniques, approaches, and strategies for storytelling, drawing on personal sources as well as advice from established writers. This workshop is a place to experiment, grow and see ourselves through a different kind of looking-glass: the inexhaustible mirror of narrative. Hope to see you in my workshop!
