Writing About Trauma – LoungeWriters Class Series

06 Aug 21 Online Workshop


LoungeWriters Class Series

Class size is limited – Register early!

David Chrisinger, a seasoned writer and teacher of memoir, explores both the difficulties inherent in writing about personal trauma and the techniques for doing so in a compelling way. The hands-on lessons he imparts in this workshop can be used by anyone who has ever experienced trauma or wants to write better about catastrophe and crisis—particularly people with a deep need to share that experience and what they’ve learned in a way that leads to connection and understanding. All participants will leave the class with an outline they can use to write a personal essay or book-length memoir. Participants will also be exposed to a wide range of craft tools and storytelling structures that Chrisinger and his students have used to process conflict in their own lives, creating beautiful stories of growth and transformation.
