The Promises We Carry - Susan Scott in conversation with Claudia Putnam

Some stories live with us for years, waiting for the right time to appear. Claudia’s story of her son, Jacob, will live on in her chapbook, Double Negative—meaning Jacob will live on, despite his imperfect heart failing him when he was an infant.

But what about other family members? Does a mother’s telling open fresh wounds for them? How are friends and relatives supposed to navigate renewed interest in enduring heartbreak?

Join us to explore how going public with one person’s truth impacts other people in their life.

Claudia Putnam is a writer, poet, and craniosacral therapist. Her short memoir, Double Negative, won the Split/Lip Press creative nonfiction chapbook prize. Her debut collection, The Land of Stone and River, won the Moon City Press poetry prize. A novella will be out later in 2022. Claudia has received several residency awards, including the year-long George Bennett Fellowship at Phillips Exeter Academy, in New Hampshire. She lives in Colorado, USA. Her surviving son, Julian, is a chef in Seattle.

Sessions are free, and open to all. You need not be a writer to take part.

Life writing is the art of plumbing truth and mystery, and finding your authentic voice. We are here to help you focus your energy, and shed whatever doubts and fears make you hold your tongue. Join this month’s experiential session, focused on simple writing exercises you can do with paper and pen or your favorite writing instrument.

Please, share this invite with others who are seeking ways to ignite their writing practice.
