Do you want to write about subjects such as loss, shame, and trauma but are unsure how to proceed? In this workshop for women-identifying writers, participants will follow Adrienne Rich’s poem “Diving Into the Wreck” as a guide, using the tools of persona, voice, and memory to mine the rich territory of our most deeply held experiences. By the end of this two session workshop, you will have generated enough material to transform emotionally charged experiences into the beginnings of powerful essays, poems, and memoir projects.
