Margaret Atwood has written, “The page waits, pretending to be blank.” This workshop is for those who have always intended to write their own story but have yet to discover the way in or clear the time to follow where it leads. In truth, finding our stories can be an act of excavation; they hide. In the back of a closet, in the cracks on a coffee mug, in the creases of a catcher’s mitt, they wait to be re-discovered and brought back to life on the page. Working with material from your own life, we will explore a wide variety of ways to start and structure your stories, using the tools of narration and reflection to build better bridges between yourself, your reader, and the world outside your door.
Judith Huge has spent over 30 years developing innovative approaches to both learning and writing. As president of her own national consulting firm, teacher of both undergraduate and graduate-level college courses, and director of writing workshops across the country, she has made a difference in the way thousands of people find, craft, and promote their writing voices. She is a co-author of 101 Ways You Can Help, a guide to grief, as well as “A Middle Aged Woman and the Sea,” a tale of loss and transition published in the Traveler’s Tales anthology Women in the Wild. In the words of a recent participant, “This was an experience I will always treasure...it opened up so many possibilities to explore.” Opening up possibilities is a strength Judy cherishes and shares.
