Lidia Yuknavitch: Beauty from Blunder – Writing in Difficult Times


  • The Rowe Center 22 Kings Highway Rowe, MA, 01367 United States (map)

Join Lidia for a workshop unlike any you’ve taken before. She doesn’t believe in the top-down, writer-guru method or in the inherited workshop rituals and traditions. She has spent a lifetime creating a lateral, collaborative process to lead you into new and unknown territories from which you can make art. This weekend, discover how the perceived mistakes and blunders in your life, your sense of being overwhelmed by personal problems or difficulties in the world, your feelings of being an outsider or a misfit, can be embraced as opportunities for self-expression. In her charming, funny, and frank style,  Lidia will show you how your “problems” and “blunders” can be used to generate profound courage, creativity, resilience, and the ability to endure in challenging times — and how they can enliven your writing as you process them in collaboration with others, exploring the unique narrative strategies awaiting you and only you.
