What is this thing we call a story? Why do stories exist? Are they authentic and vital or artificial and passe? By what alchemy do our thoughts, memories, images, and fabrications become true narrative, powerful enough to transport and change a reader? Bring your questions, ideas, and written work, and I’ll offer some new theories, approaches, and exercises, along with fresh revision and workshopping techniques designed to help embolden us to tell the stories we want and mean to tell.
