Empathy isn’t just remembering to say “that must be really hard” – it’s figuring out how to bring difficulty into the light so it can be seen at all. Empathy isn’t just listening, it’s asking the questions whose answers need to be listened to. Empathy requires inquiry as much as imagination. Empathy requires knowing you know nothing. Empathy means acknowledging a horizon of context that extends perpetually beyond what you can see.” ~ Leslie Jamison
If you are a writer, if you feel that soulful pull to tell a story, then it means you are an empath. In this workshop, you will learn how to be vulnerable with yourself as a writer, which in turn allows you to be vulnerable with your characters. If you build vulnerable and raw characters, the characters tell you where the plot goes; you should be flexible with your ending while writing the characters.
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.” ~ Brene Brown
