Our stories and our feelings about them matter.
Honor them.

Elizabeth (Lisa) leads workshops
on writing your solo show, memoir, personal essay, or keynote. Anyone who grew up or is currently living between or among different worlds, as a bridge or an island or both (whatever that may mean to you), will get a lot from this class. Lisa specializes in drawing out stories by people who have felt unseen or unheard in some way. The sessions are helpful for anyone with a story they want to share.
