- Teacher: Center for Community Engagement
Writing chapters from one's life story can produce, gifts for family, and an important record of, community life. In this workshop, we will read, short passages from a variety of voices reflecting, on lessons learned from life encounters and from, interviews we conduct. We will use these passages, as prompts for our own writing, leading to a, gathering of short life chapters for further, reflection and revision over time. No experience, necessary, but a willing heart.
You don't eat just once every few days. You don't, speak just every week or so. Learning is, continuous, and hunger is closer to breathing than, to an annual rite. So why not write daily? In this, workshop, we will feed on examples from the daily, writing of William Stafford, and practice in the, spirit of his work. The emphasis will be on the, process of creation: creating texts the length of, poems but for use in multiple genres. The goal, will be to know what it feels like--in the body, and in acts of sustaining witness--to practice the, continuous writing life you have imagined.
