The Writer’s Sacred Journey: Find and Write a Compelling Story with Kate Horsley / July 28th, 2012
Explore inner and outer sources of inspiration and material for writing by combining brief meditation and guided imagery. Students will travel figuratively to different times and cultures to find what inspires us most, taking full advantage of the present moment to produce pieces of short writing. The emphasis will be on going beyond the ego’s agenda to a deeper place where writing is a powerful gift to others.
Kate Horsley found that every event in her life was marked by a book. Research she did on women in the American West inspired her to write novels about the little known but awesome lives of ordinary people in extraordinary times. The author of six published novels―Crazy Woman, A Killing in New Town, Careless Love, Confessions of a Pagan Nun, The Changeling, and Black Elk in Paris―Horsley teaches creative writing and speaks on the process of research and writing historical fiction, particularly focusing on the Southwest and Ireland.
