Join us for an evening of reflective and exploratory writing as we ramble our ways into telling new stories about ourselves and our place in this world.
In the culmination of this four-part series, we will write tiny personal stories and gather them into a collective zine. You are free to bring and copy old photographs, diary entries, personal artifacts- anything that will help tell your tiny story! Magazines and scraps will also be provided. You do not need to have attended the previous workshops or have any experience writing narrative or making zines to join us!
Disrupting & Discovering Personal Narratives is guided by Kansas City writer Rebekah Taussig. Growing up visibly disabled, Rebekah’s writing reaches for stories that hold the both/and, enhancing and complicating flat, cultural narratives around big words like disability, motherhood, and gender. She’s spent most of her life immersed in the world of writing and reading – as a student, teacher, and author – because she believes the words we use and the stories we tell matter.
