Author’s workshop description and bio:
“Your Body As Nature”
In this workshop, we explore the origin of our personal narratives. Literally. We look for the story behind the story—in the rough of tree bark, the scar on your left arm, the arc of a bird wing, the memory your lungs hold. Body and Nature are, in most ways, one and the same. With free writing, letters-to, movement outdoors, and spontaneous poetry, we will use body and nature to access and evoke the charged stories that live within us. Consider this a generative process.
Molly Caro May leads writing workshops across the country. Her work has appeared in Orion Magazine, Salon, and Fourth Genre, among others. She is the author of The Map of Enough: One Woman’s Search For Place (Counterpoint Press, 2014)and co-founder of the Thunderhead Writers’ Collective in Bozeman, Montana.
