Writing Workshop with Dani Shapiro (2 hours)
We carry our stories inside us. Some stories are easier to tell than others. There are stories we polish into well-formed, amusing anecdotes, and others we bury deep until they rise up and take us by surprise. Through a series of brief meditations, readings, prompts and exercises, we will begin to see what we’re carrying, what we’re holding and what matters most
