Days of Reflection
DAY OF REFLECTION AND LEARNING
“Pilgrimages: Gratitude, Writing and Memoir”
Date: Saturday, November 19, 2016 – 10:00am – 3:30pm
Using Valerie Brown’s The Road That Teaches and other memoir writings, we will consider the metaphor of pilgrimage as a way to approach writing memoir and finding sacred connections. Gratitude will provide a process for creating life themes and stories, with historical events and personal milestones as frames of reference. Join us for a day of creative writing, reflection and beach walks to help with writing scenes, essays or fictional works based on lived experience. We will explore the interplay of gratitude and story, writing and sharing in the safe space of a fellowship of writers and learning from those who teach through their writings. This program is limited to 15 participants.
