Are you Interested in exploring and crafting your life stories? Join us for the spring Life Stories workshop!
Life Stories is an 10-part workshop for writers and storytellers of all experience levels (including none). Using prompts, open-ended inquiries, and exercises, you’ll capture imagery from your deepest memory. Employing fool-proof techniques and facilitated feedback, you’ll elevate and craft these stories into capital “S” Stories, explore which forms your stories wants to take, and learn best practices for sharing stories in both the literary and oral traditions. The workshop culminates in a public reading. Instructor Kim Porter has 25 years’ experience coaching writers and storytellers, and she’d love to work with you. 

$200 for 10-part series

Public Reading: Saturday April 4, 2:00 p.m. in SMoCA Lounge
