Intro to Adoptee Writer’s Experience
Introduction to Adoptee Writer’s Experience (AWE) aims to give adoptees confidence in writing their adoption stories. Whether you write for yourself or desire to share your writing with the world, you’ll find inspiration through AWE.
During Introduction to Adoptee Writer’s Experience, we’ll spend time together brainstorming topic ideas and learning how to focus our writing on individual goals. We’ll cover strategies and techniques for developing a writing habit and dive into the reasons for doubts, fears, and imposter syndrome, all-too-common forms of resistance that show up in creative work. We’ll discuss publishing options and best practices for writing and sharing emotional and trauma-focused pieces.
We’ll write inside and outside of our session time with the intention of completing one goal-based piece by the end of session three.
Each session will include discussion, writing, and the sharing of our written work.
Introduction to Adoptee Writer’s Experience strives to create a safe space for adoptees to explore writing about their adoption stories. Each session takes place via Zoom, and due to the intimate nature of personal story writing and discussion, all participants must appear on video for the entire session.
Our 2024 classes have not been announced.
