Vanessa Mártir & Writing Our Lives are excited to gift you a free/donation-based, generative, two hour writing class every Wednesday in January 2021. We start on January 6th with “Writing Creation Myths as the Stories of Our Lives.”
Creation myths are not just stories where something is created; they are explanations of how life came to exist and how the world was formed. What do creation myths have to do with writing? Everything, actually. Edwidge Danticat writes: “All artists, writers among them, have several stories—one might call them creation myths—that haunt and obsess them.” In this class, we’ll be answering the following questions:
- What are your personal creations myths?
- How have they shaped you?
- How can excavating them in your writing foster transformation?
When: January 6th, 7-9pm EST (Eastern Standard Time).
Where: online via Zoom
Registration info: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Creation Myths” in the subject line.
