Being vulnerable in our writing is an uncomfortable process. Choosing to write about difficult experiences for publication involves telling the deep truth of pain and suffering, while also acknowledging the work as a piece of art. When you make this decision, you must first answer the most difficult question— every time you approach the task of writing — What is the truth? Being vulnerable on the page creates discomfort, and often, a resistance to engaging with the deeper work you know you need to do. In this 90-minute master class, we first talk about being vulnerable in our discomfort and then how to dig deeper into sharing truth in our writing by using our senses, minimalism and instinct, and bridging the universal and personal.
