Have you always wanted to write about your life, but didn’t know where to begin? In this writing workshop with acclaimed author Grace Talusan (The Body Papers), we will complete writing exercises in class using the photos & papers of our lives. Images & documents often hint at a larger story that an official form alone can't tell. What story does this piece of paper tell? What is outside the frame of the photo? We will write the stories of these papers & photos into existence. You will practice a writing and feedback process that you can continue after the workshop. This is open to all who want to write - no experience is necessary. Bring your favorite writing tools (pen, paper, or device) and a willingness to be open to whatever shows up to the page. You will not be required to share your story, but we may have time for a few volunteers to read aloud what they have written. Supported with a grant from the Waltham Cultural Council.
