September 10, 2016: Mining Our Lives for Story


Facilitator Lynne Golodner believes “storytelling, relationships and higher purpose are the building blocks of a great life.” In this workshop, Lynne will show us how to take the raw material of our lives and turn it into essays and creative non-fiction. Fiction and non-fiction writers alike will learn Lynne’s story-building craft that shapes the personal into the universal. Even poets can learn from the laser-sharp focus of a journalist how to pack the right details and words into a tight space for the biggest impact.
