"As we write, we are both describing and deciding the direction that our life is taking. " Julia Cameron

This is an invitation for you to discover your own unique and powerful story and the profound transformation that occurs when speaking it out loud. You'll learn to trust your creative impulses, embracing all of who you are.  By becoming the author of your own life and learning how to tell your own story, you will not only learn to craft your experience into a compelling narrative but you will also unleash a sense of purpose in your own life you never thought possible.  

Through writing exercises, group discussion, and improvisation we will support one another in creating and speaking our stories. This is a workshop for those interested in personal essay, memoir, solo performance, and self discovery.

Ann is considered one of the most gifted and innovative writer/performers in the U.S.  Her Ovation Award winning solo show, Squeeze Box, was produced Off Broadway by Mel Brooks.  Ann just received "Best Solo Performer 2011" by the LA Times and SF Weekly and "Best Original Script" by the SF Bay Area Critics Circle for her current show, LOVELAND. Her personal essays have been featured on NPR, BBC, and PBS.  She teaches and tours at Esalen, Kripalu and theaters throughout the country.

Topics include:
--writing to simulate memory
--story structure
--creating spontaneously
--writing on our feet
--overcoming performance anxiety
--releasing yourself from the inner critic
--transforming ideas/stories into performance

In conjunction with this workshop, Ann will be performing "LOVELAND" at the Katharine Cornell Theater on October 28. To buy your tickets, please visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/271075.
