When we dream, our psyche writes the story of our inner life using the language of metaphor and memory. This provides rich material to help us better understand ourselves. Using our dreams as a guide, we will find the stories we need to tell and explore literary techniques to bring them to the page.
It’s not what we remember that matters – it’s what we can’t forget.
Memories, especially those that stay with us through the years, are like unmined jewels, each one holding the potential to unearth a treasure trove of stories. But that's just the beginning. The challenge for most writers is to take those events and experiences and find a way to make it into story.
As the author Paulette Bates Alden says, “We might have experience and material, but what we want is STORY: our own true story, the way we think and feel about what has happened, what we make of it, the shape we give it.”
In this summer mini-workshop series, we will spend our afternoons mining our memories and learning to craft them into compelling stories. Through in-class writing exercises and readings, we will learn how to find the words, the structure, the voice to tell our stories.
