Writing Workshop with Pat Berge, Wednesdays, February 22 - March 15, 2017, 4:00pm - 5:30pm, Classroom D. Sometimes dreams do come true. Pat Berge’s dream is to bring storytelling and writing alive to small, intimate circles.  Pat, while studying for her MFA under Professor John Schultz at Columbia College, Chicago, found John had a dream, too.  It came alive in workshops of up to10 students at a time, sitting in a circle.  Students were coached to see a moment happening in a place in their minds, and then tell that story to the group. Once stories flow around and across the circle, they can easily be captured on the page or the screen. This became the Story Workshop Method.

Pat Berge now offers that possibility to you. Storytellers and writers can tell their way into journals, letters, poems, or just a note to a good friend.

For more information, contact Pat 816-507-0704 or patberge.writerhouse@me.com
