About this Event

"Our people say that each of us has a gift. My gift is to write. Our people also say that we must share our gift."

In this workshop Joseph will guide you through the personal process of writing poetry, stories, or any other form of writing. He will share his personal gift as a storyteller and help you apply the lessons of compelling storytelling within your own work.
