THE STORY IS SHAPED BY THE BODY FROM WHICH IT COMES

a workshop for people who want to write about their own body, or someone else's, or the relationship between two bodies, about illness and health and creating out of the visceral and felt senses.

a community of people who get it, people making creative work out of an illness experience, people making creative work to get well, people who are telling stories they are afraid to tell and doing it anyway.
