From the Light: Writing About Wounding Experiences with Arisa White

3 August 2016 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


“The wound is the place where the light enters you.”—Rumi

As writers we draw inspiration from the moments that have had a lasting impact on our lives. Those moments have often left us wounded, and those wounds have left a presence that we wish to address in our writing. Although, writing has its therapeutic effects, the goal of this craft workshop is to use the light of our suffering to create work that is emotionally balanced, distinctive in language, and capable of illuminating an experience so the reader empathetically bears witness. Through a series of embodiment and generative writing exercises, and readings, you will more fully empower your voice and evolve your writing.
