Holidays in Place and in Placelessness/Multi-visions 2019: a creative writing workshop!

Holidays in Place and in Placelessness/Multi-visions 2019: a creative writing workshop is for Writers, Artists, and anyone looking forward to, dreading, or thinking on the complex and urgent issues the holidays bring up.

I will be doing this two-hour creative writing workshop November 2nd, 3-5pm, at the California Building in Northeast Minneapolis, room 201, as part of a series of events for the wonderful organization, Art to Change the World.

Workshop description:
Whether we celebrate publicly, or in a hidden way; in our homes or in a foreign land; joyously, or under the weight of family dysfunction or cultural limitations; with a sense of safety and belonging, or as targets under threat—this workshop uses creative writing craft and practice to bring forward—through writing and testimony—“multi-visions” of the holidays, and a way to approach each other at the borders between us.

More True Stories from EMS and the ER

More Confessions shares the raw and honest feelings of emergency service professionals through true 'story behind the story' revelations. Disclosing experiences from both sides of the gurney, Sherry and other EMS, ER, paramilitary, and firefighter responders walk you along their fragile line of sanity. Using humor as a life raft during perfect storms, workers reflect upon how they endure and survive personal and professional tragedy while trying not to care too much, and what happens when they fail in that attempt. A graduate student in psychology, Sherry is a paramedic, trauma nurse, and crisis interventionist who led a national paramilitary crisis response team and continues conducting crisis management training throughout the U.S.

Emergency Service Professionals Praise More Confessions

"Once again, Sherry brings to life the overlooked or, too often, over-hyped world of the emergency services for all to experience. She does so with a vitality and spirit that makes her prose almost poetic. If you want to glimpse the amazing world of EMS from 'behind the curtain, ' More Confessions is for you. Highest recommendations." --Rev. Don Brown, B.A., M.Div., Flight Paramedic (retired), Chaplain, Lt. Col., CAP (retired); Pastor, First United Methodist Church, Grand Saline, TX

"More Confessions will take you to the edge of first responder insanity with honesty and integrity. Sherry has once again opened our world to the reader by cleverly describing the unbelievable experiences that we have every day. This book is the real deal!" --Peter Volkmann, MSW, EMT, Chief-Stockport NY Police Department.

"Through the venue of real and personable human experience stories, Sherry's More Confessions is a powerfully written sequel that provides key insights into the need for those who work in emergency and disaster response, as well as their families, to actively and purposely recognize and consistently addresstheir physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. All who read this book will be touched deeply in some way." --Harvey J. Burnett, Jr., PhD, LP, President, Michigan Crisis Response Association Sergeant, Buchanan Police Department Assistant Professor of Psychology, Behavioral Sciences Dept., Andrews University
