Writing People Using Objects

In this workshop we will use objects as the engine to tell the story of an individual or a group of people. Local poet and storyteller Danielle Dixon will use discussion and writing prompts, as well as stories of her own, to spark participants' creativity and potential to enliven their storytelling through simple, everyday objects.
