As the products of interfaith families, we have unique stories to tell. Join writer Rebecca Spence for a four-week workshop in which we’ll give voice to our experience. Through weekly discussions and creative writing exercises, we’ll explore the themes and narrative threads that arise when we allow ourselves the space. Born to an interfaith family herself, Rebecca is keenly aware of the particular sensitivities and conflicts that can arise within ourselves, as well as in our families and Jewish communities, when we negotiate identity. The story-telling process itself, regardless of experience level as a writer, can be healing, and sometimes cathartic. By the end of the workshop, you can expect to have completed a solid draft of your story.
Thursdays, February 2, 9, 16, 23
7:00 – 8:30 pm
I am hoping that some of you will want to share your stories on the internet and for publication. I’ll be in the class with hope in my heart!
