About this event

Combine imagination prompts such as visualization and meditation with historical sources, including archival newspapers, advertisements, and political events to connect with an ancestor (real or imagined). This workshop, facilitated by author Marnie Maguire, takes you through the creative process by looking at character sketch, setting, and plot.
