Writing the Sacred Journey: Introductory Workshop on Spiritual Memoir

Writing Your Sacred Journey: Stories to Transform Self and World

In Person:  Monthly on fourth Fridays (except holidays) from 1:30-3:30 p.m. (9/22, 10/27, 11/17, 12/15)

4101 Harriet Avenue in Minneapolis

Join Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew to explore the art and practice of spiritual memoir writing.  Each session will give participants the opportunity to write, time for conversation, inspiration from model writers, and insights about craft, content, and practice.  These monthly practice sessions are meant for writers of all levels, including absolute beginners.  New participants are encouraged to take Elizabeth’s introduction to spiritual memoir workshop or read Writing the Sacred Journey.  Because practice sessions are not consecutive, you can drop in as you’d like.  Over three years, the curriculum covers the significant aspects of the craft of writing memoir, common themes, and the invitations to transformation inherent in the practice.
