Soul Journey Memoir Workshop

Soul Journey Memoir Workshop In-Person / Online

Personal writing can be a soul-searching experience, sometimes lonely. And yet the ultimate goal is to communicate our inner work to a wider audience. This workshop is designed for those who have a story to tell or book to write, and would benefit from exploring themes, memories and the interpretation of experience in a supportive atmosphere. These weekly gatherings will develop community as we learn from one another and share our work, from concept to purpose and onward to completion. There will be some discussion during the final weeks about the final editing and publication process, both traditional and self-publishing. Participants are encouraged to bring works in progress, questions, a short list of their favorite books and lessons of their own.

Led by Tony Tekaroniake Evans. Wednesdays, February 21 through March 27. The group will meet in person in the Idaho Room, and a Zoom link is available for remote participation.
