Online Healing and Writing with Francesca Lia Block starts Sunday Sunday, July 11 11-2 PST for 10 weeks
This class will provide a safe space for personal growth and healing, and you will also learn the basics of writing fiction (memoirists and poets also welcome). In Wired For Story, Lisa Cron argues that story was crucial to our evolution, providing templates for survival in a dangerous world. By telling stories, we teach our readers how to navigate the dangers that come with being human, and we reinforce our own strategies for survival.
My twelve questions will help writers tell more powerful stories, hopefully to guide others, and also let us examine our own lives in different ways.
Each week you will receive a mini lecture via email. You will respond to my questions and assignments with 5 double-spaced 12 pt. font pages by the following week and give and receive feedback. We will also meet ONLINE, SUNDAYS FROM 11-2 PST using ZOOM, to chat about our writing (and offer support).
By the end of the course you will have the template to write or revise a longer piece of work. You will also have connected to yourself and to others through the healing power of story.
