RestoryNation: Writing Your Origin Story

  • Art & Literature Laboratory 2021 Winnebago Street Madison, WI, 53704 United States (map)

Explore your origin story. We, as humans, are more than our birth certificates and where we work. We, as writers, are more than our rationalizations. As both humans and writers, we are all at once artists, dreamers, mythmakers, and visionaries.  In this workshop, we will explore the cultural history and importance of origin stories, as well as ideas for approaching and discovering your own.

Influences include Leny Strobel, Jurgen Werner Kremer, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Audra Lorde (“biomythography”), Virgilio Enriquez, and David Abram.
