with Rahla Xenopoulos
A creative pursuit of inner truths and story-telling, both memoir and fiction.
Join me in a place of adventure and free writing, where together we will abandon both inner critics and writers blocks. We will work with photographs, memories, imagination, music and smell.
This workshop is designed for experienced, published authors as well as for novices who have a hidden story to excavate and tell. It is designed for people who have a flickering feeling that they might have a book hidden within but need to discover what that book is about, for people who have been sitting on a book but haven’t managed to start and so too it is designed for people who enjoy the therapy of creative writing. But, above all it is designed for people who yearn for a place of kindness.
Bring pen, paper and an open heart. Overall, this class is designed for people who yearn for a place of kindness.
