After a dramatic reading of his YA novel Pritty, participants will explore techniques for creating fictional worlds and characters that re-imagine home, radical acceptance, and healing from trauma. Workshop attendees will not only reflect on their own conceptualization of “home” but how to use lived experience to create characters and worlds that restore hope, transform trauma, and unlock healing for us all.
