Workshop led by Signe Schaefer
Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School, 35 West Plain Road, Great Barrington, 7 p.m.
Writing is an important tool in working with our own biographies. As we write about our lives, we can awaken insights into past events and can also discover windows and doorways to the future. Biographical writing invites us to open our attention, to look beyond what we think we know, beyond our habits of self-perception. Using visual prompts we will explore our way through past experiences toward our own next steps – as writers and/or in our everyday lives.
