Two part Event by Pat Conroy Literary Center
When: Thursday June 16, 2022 and Thursday July 7, 2022; 6:00-8:00 p.m. EDT on Zoom.
Cost: $60 for both sessions
Limited to 15 participants
This special pair of workshops is designed to engage with writers and creators searching for their storytelling voice. Instructor Iris Jackson will share experiences from her Telling Trails photos, poems, and writings, providing time for comments and conversation, with the goal of students creating and sharing their own narratives.
Utilizing Telling Trails as a vehicle, participants will have opportunity to listen, share, write, and join in conversations about their creative journeys. After some shorter writing exercises, storytellers will have the opportunity to focus on their chosen themes to develop a larger more complete piece to be shared in the second session—with additional time for presentations, conversations, and feedback.
Workshop attendees will also have the opportunity for their works to be included in upcoming blogs on the Telling Trails website, along with possible inclusion in the Telling Trails Tour Book Series.
