Dive into the world of story in this interactive workshop that explores narratives beyond the conventional hero's journey. We'll travel the paths of the heroine, the seeker, and others, including the journey of integrity, the healing journey, and the virgin's promise. We'll investigate these narratives through their appearance in literature, film, and the lives of public figures, supplementing with poetry, videos, and podcasts. Through creative and reflective writing, as well as other imaginative activities, we'll harness their power of these journeys to breathe new life into our own writing projects.
