Telling Your Story: A Personal Essay Workshop

Thursday, January 20, @ 7:00 pm


Jan. 20, 7 p.m., Spark Central, 1214 W Summit Parkway, Spokane.

Our life stories are a means for connection—a tender offering in a troubled era. Part reportage and part reflection, personal essays can reveal hidden truths about ourselves, our families, and our societies.

In this interactive and generative writing workshop, Kristen Millares Young will help participants tell their own stories. Available in English and Spanish, each hourlong session will begin with a one-page reading to inspire group discussion, followed by timed prompts that guide individual writing sessions. By weaving together community narratives, we can craft a vision for our future that includes hope and the capacity for unexpected change.

The session is sponsored by Spark Central and Humanities Washington.
