Life is change, yet we often seem surprised or even disturbed to find ourselves in transition. Living with uncertainty, though sometimes unnerving, can be fertile ground for the writer. When we combine an understanding of the transition process with writing prompted by a beautiful setting, we can identify whether a chapter is beginning or ending and cultivate its wisdom. In this workshop based on the work of Leia Francisco, we will immerse ourselves in nature and learn to begin writing our transition stories in multiple forms, worthy of sharing with others.
