Join award-winning author Kristin Kaye on a journey into the nature of Visionary Knowing & Mythic Imagination both in our lives and on the page. In this 3-hour workshop Kristin offers meditations, reading, reflection and writing tools for crafting these hard-to-express experiences.

In the west, we tend to relegate ‘fantastic’ experience into a range of literary sub-genres, from Sci-Fi and Fantasy on the one end to Magical Realism on the other. Where Sci-Fi and Fantasy create entirely new worlds, Magical Realism is largely based in the mundane with one or more elements that blur the lines of reality. But are the elements ‘magical?’ Or are they ‘real?’ The answer is different depending on culturally accepted definition of what constitutes “reality.”

Native American and other indigenous cultures, for example, recognize our integral relationship with the natural world and allow for the voice of Hawk, Tree, Water. The question of ‘who’ is speaking and how to listen opens doors of experience and radically shifts the relationship between who has power, dominion, who gets to tell a story and where knowing comes from.

As a writer these become key considerations when writing varieties of experience. Join us to discover how to translate ineffable realms into story.

Writers of all skill level and genres welcome.

Register in advance for this Zoom class.
