Spiritual Journey Writing

 SF Grotto Spiritual Journey Writing Workshop (read a Review)

TWO WEEKENDS, OCTOBER 13-14 & 20-21 2018

Are you a seeker with existential experiences and questions to phrase or interpret? Have you had a spiritual experience that has moved or changed you? Do you want to write a story about your transformation through a significant emotional event? In this workshop, you’ll get that chance! You’ll unveil, identify, and select the important steps of your journey that you wish to write about.

In this workshop, methods used to write about the spiritual journey are covered. This will include memoir, travel writing, personal essay, letter, creative nonfiction, fiction, and short story. You’ll come away with new writing tools to enliven your prose, using imagery, scene, setting, theme, framing, and lens, to better describe the indescribable. During the session you’ll draft and revise a piece of prose about a spiritual journey and leave with a plan to continue to revise and perfect your writing. Publishing opportunities and practices will also be discussed. 

The course is designed for all levels of spiritual writers; previous workshop participants are welcome too! Please bring an open mind, a willingness to honor a safe space for sharing, and your pen and notebook. If you prefer to use a computer for your writing, by all means please bring it.
