This workshop is for women who have divorced and who are now ready to write their divorce story. You will complete a draft of your divorce story using the Divorce Story Structure, suitable for your personal file. This course approaches the writing of your divorce story through a deep understanding of how personal and societal narratives shape belief systems. There will be creative exploration of group and individual identity, and you will unearth how and why the narrative of marriage, divorce, family, and gender affect your conception and perception of self and divorce.
The origins of the Divorce Story Structure:
The Divorce Story Structure was developed as a result of my counsel asking me to write the story of my marriage/divorce for my legal file. Writing my divorce story, submitting it to my legal file, and storing it as a personal record shifted the outcome of my divorce across all arenas. It was key to moving forward in my life. The divorce story states the truth about who you were and how you navigated the world. It reflects your past beliefs and obliges a shifted authorial perspective on divorce. I developed the Divorce Story Structure to write my own story and this is the tool that I present in class.
Having taught writing for many years, I know that structure enables individuals to write with more confidence. When you brave writing your truth to power, the reader knows. Divorce Story Structure changed my life, I know it can do the same for you.

You don’t have to be a writer to write your divorce story. You simply have to be a woman who wants to tell her truth.
