The Power of Naming during Life Changing Events
In this memoir workshop we will write about 4 periods of change: Preparing for Attack-from the Cold War to 9/11, the Space Race, the Vietnam War, and the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will discuss how global events generate their own vocabulary, a language we use to define and process our new reality. From new words such as N-95 masks to new realities such as toilet paper shortages, the vocabulary of change has power. The writing prompts will help us explore our memories of these life changing events.
