Online Writing Workshop: Narratives of the Unconscious with Susan Tiberghien

What and where is story? Margaret Atwood writes, “Going into narrative is a dark road.” We will find our way into the dark, into the unconscious and bring our stories out into the light. Looking at examples from Orhan Pamuk, Toni Morrison,  and Terry Tempest Williams, we will craft our stories into journal entries, personal essays, short stories, poems. Our voices will bear witness in our turbulent times.

Tickets for this 2.5hour intensive are $99. Please register at:
