ONE DAY WORKSHOP: Coming Through the Crucible Workshop w Philip Kenney | Jan 18

Using Writing To Illuminate Our Way

Even the most successful writers are subject to troubling insecurity, episodes of self-doubt and the persistent narrative that insists, “I am not good enough.” Navigating the turbulent, emotional waters of a creative life is a challenge we must all take up to ensure our work is not undermined by the vulnerabilities of our internal world. Using writing, especially poems, to illuminate the way, this workshop will explore the psychological and emotional underpinnings of the not-good-enough narrative. Participants will learn ways to relate to these challenges and loosen the binds that restrict creative work. A few of the writers who will guide us through the day are Emily Dickenson, Ellen Bass, Raymond Carver and Wendell Berry. Open to all writers in every genre. | Maximum: 14 writers
