When we write stories inspired by personal, familial, or historical trauma, there are often forces that put up roadblocks – people in our families or communities who want to keep the trauma hidden or institutions that dismiss or deny our experiences. We also put up our own psychological barriers to writing. Under such conditions, how does one access and write a repressed history? In this generative workshop, we'll practice ways of tapping into our unconscious through the use of psychological and psychoanalytic tools such as dreamwork and trauma narratives, while also casting a critical eye towards the way trauma narratives are produced and consumed in pop culture. We’ll also explore how writing from a marginalized life experience complicates the work of storytelling.
