Writing Your Story: The Courage to Tell the Truth
Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Writing Your Story: The Courage to Tell the Truth

In this workshop we will discuss facing the blank page and how to generate material. We will examine your writing practice and how to maintain your writing discipline, how to overcome writer's resistance, and how to discover your themes and unique voice. You'll learn about the writer's toolbox: writing books, critiquing groups, writer's retreats. We will also discuss connecting to local resources. Bring your questions, your challenges and your inspirations! Beginner-mid-level writers. Experiential.


Wendy Brown Baez has published two books of poetry and prose and poetry in numerous literary journals.

She is the recipient of McKnight and Minnesota State Arts Board grants to bring writing workshops to at risk youth and in non-profits and is a member of the MN Prison Writing Workshop. Wendy maintains 3 blogs. She guides writers to overcome writer's resistance, generate material, find the stories they are compelled to tell, and connect to writer's resources.

Our location: Many of our classes are held at the Twin Cities Daily Planet office (though many are not—see each class listing for location information). Our office is centrally located, but it can be a little tricky to find if you don't realize that we are in the Wells Fargo bank branch at 2600 E. Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis. Free parking is available in the bank's parking lot; to get to our office, enter through the bank's back door—from the parking lot. You'll see the door to our office right across from the ATM. If the bank is closed, you can get into the vestibule by swiping any ATM card; otherwise, just step over to our window and give us a knock!
