Storytelling for Healing: Public Writing Workshop

Is there a story from your past you’re nervous to discuss but have a burning desire to share? Do you have a book inside you? How can you use social media as a memoir without making yourself vulnerable? How can storytelling raise your profile or promote your cause - whilst protecting your self?

We are all storytellers. Every social media caption, every ‘about’ section, every blog post and every conversation we have in a coffee shop is an opportunity to share our story in a way that heals us or triggers us. We live in an age where everybody has a ‘brand’ - but how does a tragedy, misfortune or difficult period fit into that image? If there’s a rough patch in your past, should you share it and to who, how and when?

According to studies, conscious storytelling - sharing our pivotal experiences in a supported and safe space - can be a path to healing, both for the storyteller and the people who shares your memory.

As entrepreneurs, bloggers, not-for-profit founders or employees, it can also help us to attract customers, build a profile and feel more relatable to colleagues. In an era where oversharing is trendy, how can you find the balance between authentic honesty and conscious censorship?

WHAT IT COVERS:

  • The Starting Point: Identifying the story you wish to share, which has the potential to heal you and the people who absorb your memory.

  • Attracting your Audience: How to choose the best medium to share your story. This includes books, blogs, articles and video content. Discover the specifications of writing for each option.

  • Structuring your Trauma. How to write about an emotional topic in a way that is also clear and constructive, including the common pitfalls of non-fiction writing.

  • Ritualised Writing. How to create ceremony around your writing practise, and support yourself as you revisit life-changing experiences.

  • Honesty & Self-Censorship: How much do you need to share to be authentic, when to hold back and when to fill in the gaps? Why less is more.

  • Protecting your People: How to tell your story whilst respecting the other characters within it, and the important topic of legal censorship.

  • What’s Next? Pitching to editors, finding a book publisher and promoting your story, including the resources (many of them free!) which can help you on your way.

  • Your Rights as a Storyteller. Debunking myths around paid storytelling, and the rights you have as a writer to say no, and respect your own boundaries.
