Geography of Grief 

with Alida Thacher

Date: Sunday, Sept. 8
Time: 10 am to 12:30 pm
Location: PDX Writers Studio, NE Portland, Hollywood District
Cost: $55


​Losing someone (or something) we love is like no other human experience. No two relationships are the same, making the loss personal and isolating. As writers, we often avoid the depth of grief our characters undergo, skimming the surface of their pain. In this workshop, we'll map stories of love and loss, tracing memory and connection through writing and feedback. 

This workshop is appropriate for all genres of writing: poetry, fiction, and memoir, as well as for all levels of experience. Loss and grief can be defined any way the writer perceives it.
