Ana Castillo

 

Work with Ana Castillo, Ph.D., poet, novelist and writer from 9:00AM – 12:00PM at the Sacramento Poetry Center (1719 25th St. Sacramento, Ca.)on Saturday, March 21, 2015.

In memoir, the reader must be persuaded that the narrator is writing honestly, whether or not he/she is, is secondary. It doesn’t matter as much ‘what happened’ as what you make of what you remember may have happened.

The workshop will consist of a number of exercises, which help us to know how to get started when desiring to work on a memoir essay.

Spiritual Activism is the intersection of spirituality, and activism. It is activism that is compassionate, positive, kind, fierce and transformative. Being a spiritual activist means taking our part in creating change, with a spirit of positivity, compassion, love and a balance of interdependence and self determination.

We’ll talk, we’ll laugh, we’ll cry. We’ll vent. We’ll write from our hearts and our minds. And then, we’ll learn to get rid of all the sentimentality and leave on the page what is important for the reader to know about your memoir.

Please bring an object that speaks to your current spiritual connections to the workshop.

The total fee for the workshop is $150. A deposit of $75.00 is required by March 20,2012. The workshop fee must be paid in full on March 21, 2014.
