The Art of Writing Trauma from the Periphery of the Event

A Mini-Online Workshop brought to you by (W)rites of Passage

Wednesday, April 29th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and Wednesday, May 6th from 3:00-5:00 p.m.

$150.00 (limited to 6 participants)

In this mini-workshop we will examine how to write trauma by not writing it directly and why this approach can be useful. Participants will receive their first homework assignment a week in advance so we can workshop the writing together as a group online via Zoom on April 29th and repeat for the second round to be held on May 6th using a new homework assignment to further develop the technique and hone your craft. "Trauma" is the Greek word for "wound" and almost all narratives operate around the site of an injury whether it be physical, emotional, and/or psychological. This workshop is open to poets and prose writers alike as well as those writers working in the realms of fiction and CNF including those writing genre or in hybrid forms that very well might defy standard definitions regarding form. Prior workshop experience preferred (if you have concerns, please discuss this with the instructor). As an online class, it is available to writers everywhere in the United States.


(W)rites of Passage has long served writers as A Church for Writers & Writing and we look forward to regulars and new participants joining us during this difficult time. Please register by hitting the Contact tab above or emailing us at Payment due upon registration.
