Sometimes our most important stories are the result of trauma and or healing that we’ve experienced in our physical bodies. This workshop will explore methods of tackling these necessary narratives on the page such as using second-person, disjunctive or sectioned essay forms, and using hybrid genres. The workshop will also begin discussion on when is the right time to write these narratives and for whom.
