Saturday, November 6th from 1:00-2:00 p.m. MST via Zoom

How can we enter difficult or complex subject matter when the task seems overwhelming? Where do we begin and how do we keep going? How do we move into the space of writing “big themes” – loss, recovery, transformation – when the largeness of such themes can feel intimidating? In this gathering we will work with a writing strategy that calls together the energy of material that might otherwise feel impossible. All genres welcome. Selah uses these techniques herself. The more, the merrier, come one, come all! $30.00 (or $27.00 if you show us proof you purchased Rancher). To register, please email Payment due upon registration. No refunds after October 23rd. Deadline to sign up will be Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021 at midnight in Colorado.
