This month: Writing the Self with Fernanda Santos

Untold experiences are often painful to narrate—and also to listen to. At this pivotal moment in history, it's more important than ever to be able to articulate those experiences: death, illness, despair, the end of a romance, our disillusions. In this workshop, we will engage in the difficult yet necessary exercise of digging within ourselves to find a story we haven't told, but believe needs to be told.
