Join poet, novelist, and essayist Deena Metzger for a reading from her new book, A Rain of Night Birds Friday evening with actor and author Naomi Newman. Saturday, join Deena for a daylong story writing workshop.
Everyone has a story and it calls to be known and written. It is a heart story and it can guide us. It arises from the imagination, a real place, rich with stories, visions, and dreams. The story is comprised of many other interlocking stories; the writing experience calls these into dynamic relationships on the page, like a council that holds all the voices, including our ancestors and descendants. Writing for ourselves and the future, we are free to include the revelation of dreams, the widsom of what we love, the different rhythms and understanding of the natural world, the indigenous cultures that birthed us, the startling beauty of truth telling, and the multidimensionality of consciousness that appears when we are awake and aligned with spirit. Together, we will enter into the wild, unknown, into the web of voices and non-human, visible and invisible, looking for forms and language to express our deepest selves on behalf of a viable future for all beings.
