Miriam's Well Reading & Writing Workshop
Miriam's Well Reading, and Writing the Tree of Life Workshop: Midrash & Personal Mythology to Revision Our Lives
Author Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg will start the evening with a reading from her new novel Miriam's Well: A Modern Day Exodus. More information about the book can be found here. This will lead into a writing workshop for the rest of the evening.
What can we learn about our own lives and legacies from seeing old stories with new eyes? Midrash is the Hebrew tradition of re-interpreting and re-visioning our guiding myths and messages to foster greater meaning, freedom, and authenticity. We'll look at and write from new angles about guiding myths and narratives in our lives through innovative writing prompts, discussion, humor, and insights that lead you into poetry, fiction, songs. In the process, find new branches and blossoms into who you are, how you live, and how you can help your community re-vision their stories.
