WRITE YOUR LIFE: For The Page & The Stage

annphotowith award-winning solo performer Ann Randolph

The class given at The Marsh is currently sold out. But you can still take a class with Ann! See below for other locations.

This is an invitation for you to discover your own unique and powerful story and the profound transformation that occurs when speaking 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.
