“Had I not created my own world, I most certainly would have died inother people’s.” — Anais Nin
Writing is magic and deserves the reverence and dignity we give to such things. Writing is also a personal discipline, not a competition, and it is much more than a means of gaining fame and recognition.
These workshops are devoted to going deeper with our writing, becoming better observers, better critical thinkers, and ultimately more balanced people. We can use writing to save our own lives and the lives of others. This is important work.
«If I have made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient observation than to any other reason.» — Isaac Newton
