Unleashing the Power of Personal Narrative (Seattle, May 19)

Narrative writing is about so much more than just “show vs. tell” techniques designed to bring a personal story to life. It’s a way to ignite a passion for writing among youth, while helping them to find healing, empowerment and validation by writing the deeply personal stories they need to tell. It’s also a way to foster understanding and compassion among peers and the community at large.

In this hands-on narrative writing workshop, New York Times bestselling author Ingrid Ricks draws on personal experiences and lessons learned working one-on-one with more than a thousand students to help you unleash the healing power of personal narrative for the youth you mentor—and for yourself.
