BREAK: WRITE YOUR DIVORCE STORY WORKSHOP
Dates: December 3 SATURDAY 7-10AM (HST)
Intensive for $200
This workshop is for women who are ready to write their divorce story. You will strive to draft your divorce story during this one day intensive using the Divorce Story Structure. 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, gender, and family–both nuclear and extended, 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.
This class will give you the opportunity to examine the institution of marriage and the role of women, nuclear and extended family, and how personal belief systems inform ideas of self and community. We will explore key concepts, symbols, and ideas to help you write your divorce story including Dream State, Master Narratives, Phoenix, Han, Kintsugi and more.
Having taught writing for many years, I know that structure enables individuals to write with more confidence, fluidity, and ease. 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.
Participants will have the opportunity to submit up to 1000 words of your divorce story within one week after the completion of the workshop and are eligible for discounted coaching sessions.

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.
Disclaimer: You must consult with your attorney regarding the suitability of your divorce story for legal purposes.
