Fee: $32/$26 members (all materials included)
Registration: Space is limited, advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8794.

Come explore and share our origin stories. 

Who are you? Why are you here? What do you want? We, as humans, are more than our birth certificates and where we work. We, as writers, are more than our rationalizations. As both humans and writers, we are all at once artists, dreamers, mythmakers, and visionaries.  In this workshop, we will explore the cultural history and importance of origin stories, as well as ideas for approaching and discovering your own.
