"If your story wanted to chat in line at the grocery store, or if it woke you up at 4 AM demanding to talk, would you know how to listen?"
In these four sessions, you will learn an entirely new way to write.
Foraged wild stories are largely autobiographical. They can be whimsical, ridiculous, and hilarious. They can be heartbroken, griefstricken, and raw. These stories are alive inside of the writer, waiting to be discovered, entrusted, and released to the world.
In this workshop we will work collaboratively to understand the nature of our wild stories. We will practice a variety of writing and meditation techniques to coax the wild story to reveal itself. Under the mentorship of an experienced story forager, you will explore the wilds of your inner landscape. You will learn to listen for clues from your wild story, and get lots of support as you hone your senses and come to know the story that wants to be free.
