“This workshop taught me that there are many ways to structure a piece, many different approaches and forms, but one thing remains true – staying with just one emotional experience and exploring it as deeply as I can is key. For me, the revelation was that first I need to allow myself that complete immersion in the memory, in the emotions, to access my deeper feelings, get them onto the page—technically speaking, to “generate material”—before I do anything else.

I knew I was in good hands with [the instructor] as the moderator – very sensitive, considerate, and kind.”
