Adventure, Transformation and the Courage to Create – A Writing Workshop for Men – with Rob Okun

Adventure, Transformation and the Courage to Create – A Writing Workshop for Men – with Rob Okun

One of the scariest and bravest things we men can do is to look deeply into our inner lives. Everyone has warned us not to go there; we’re told men don’t need to muck around in the land of  memories and feelings. Ah, but what gifts await us if we do. In “Adventure, Transformation and the Courage to Create,” you will find a safe, inviting place to look inside and write about old memories, the adventure of your life right now, and your vision for the future.

            All of us have changed since the coronavirus pandemic swept across the world in 2020. For men, the difficulty of living with uncertainty offers us both a challenge and an opportunity. Accustomed to believing we must always be strong, silent, and invulnerable, COVID-19 has been a great equalizer. Some men ignored its role as a teacher; others saw it as a portal into the world of our inner lives. If you’re one of those men—or would like to be—“Adventure, Transformation and the Courage to Create” is for you. In our writing time together, we’ll explore the range of our experiences: some may take a deep dive into their childhoods; others may look at their relationships. Our form of expression is open. Experiment with memoir, letters to the living or dead, stories, poetry, non-fiction.  Wherever you are in your life, you are welcome to share your journey in a safe, confidential place. Whether you’re coming to find your voice, to change its timbre, or amplify its reach, you are welcome here. Join us.
