The seasons have changed. We’re burrowing in for the winter time. Grab a cup of something warm and join Hobart Festival of Women Writers for a virtual writing workshop in October.
Mercy Tullis-Bukhari, a poet, essayist, and fiction writer who focuses on the woman experience through individuality, motherhood, and sexuality will present the workshop, THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE: Finding Beauty in Life-Changing Events through Words. Exploring elements of Freytag’s Pyramid, writers will have an opportunity to delve into spaces of healing and enlightenment through their words.
THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE Workshop Participants will choose an event that may have felt overwhelmingly negative at a particular time, through the lens of the emotions that were evident at the time. In the workshop, writers will detail the event through the five senses. Though certain events may feel traumatic only, they can offer opportunities for individual growth. This workshop will begin to open the creative mind for this growth. For the full workshop description, link here https://www.hobartfestivalofwomenwriters.com/copy-of-fww-winter-workshops
THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE: Finding Beauty in Life-Changing Events Through Words will run via Zoom on October 9, 16, 23 & 30. The maximum for this class is 15 participants. A minimum of 6 participants is needed to run the workshop. The fee for this Workshop is $100.
