In Diving Into the Wreck Adrienne Rich writes: “I came to explore the wreck./The words are purposes./The words are maps./I came to see the damage that was done/and the treasures that prevail.” How can we as writers transform the layered material of our lives and begin mapping a unique voice? How did it sound in our kitchens? How did it feel to hold that blue bowl you were forbidden to touch? How did it sound on the streets and in the woods of our childhoods? What are the stories we half-heard? Or turned away from hearing? Pulling from sensory and remembered landscapes provides us opportunities as writers. Come prepared to take chances and leave with beginnings and ideas for new and necessary stories.
