Threshold, conflict, duality, pattern, surprising twist, change—all features of a fairy tale, a poem, and a life. Exploring sample poems based in fairy tales and myths, we will craft our own poetic narratives that reflect and illuminate what’s universal in the human story. We may discover that indirect ways of narrating our life, that is, indirect entry points into our subject matter, can generate fresher work that surprises the writer and hence the reader; and that we are the protagonist of our story and can tell that story in ways that empower us as the hero/heroine.
NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
