Do You Have a Story that Needs to Be Told?
… or a Story that Needs to Be Re-Written?
I believe we are the stories we tell ourselves: as a culture, and as individuals.
Over the years, I have worked with survivors of abuse, teens with Asperger’s and autism, persecuted writers, and with homemakers who once thought their lives were small and their stories mundane.
I have seen how a change in perspective forces a change in understanding.
A narrative or a metaphor can turn a victim into a survivor, a whisper into a roar… or a roar into a lullaby.
Telling our life stories is transgressive. Our imagination is transformative.
“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of. ” Joss Whedon.
Perspective Writing is not about learning grammar or sentence structure. The mentoring sessions aren’t going to provide you with a formula to write a bestseller. The sessions provide a support and feedback based on your personal goals.
