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.

Product Details

Jessica needs a fix.

Vacillating between a desire to get high and a yearning for a substance-free life, she finds herself alternating between cocaine and yoga, dependence and freedom. Will she be able to let go of her self-abuse and find sobriety one day, and one breath, at a time? An addict who once disappeared into crack dens, she now seeks solace at yoga studios. As Jessica attempts to create a path to recovery “on the mat” and in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, she grapples with one unanswerable question: “Is recovery worth it?” Yoga Cocaine traces one addict's journey from the unknown of addiction to the unknown of recovery.

"A raw, compelling, artfully crafted novel, Yoga Cocaine takes us on a deep dive into the shadowy world of addiction. This novel powerfully illuminates what's available to us when we commit ourselves to the redemptive path of recovery. Even if you've never struggled with addiction, you will be shaken, moved and inspired."
--Kezia Renée Lechner, author of Close to the Bone: An Uncommon Love Story

"Yoga Cocaine is a heartwrenching story of a woman failing at what seems like an impossible mission: getting sober. Its intense, matter-of-fact voice draws us into Jessica's world, walking us through her journey in a way that helps us to see into the mind of an addict and understand how long and hard a journey it really is."
--Selina J. Eckert, author of This Cursed Flame

"Jessica's experiences could put any fraternity guy to shame, yet you feel for her and root for her, despite her nonexistent moral compass. Through yoga, and some serious diversions, she undergoes a powerful, poignant transformation. Yoga Cocaine is an emotional roller coaster ride of despair and recovery. It's a must read for anyone who's ever dealt with addiction or loves yoga."
--Heidi Doheny Jay, author of Confessions of 400 Men

“For anyone who has known addiction and sobriety - or wondered about it - Yoga Cocaine is a powerful, painful, hopeful, inspiring and addicting story that you won't be able to put down. Pick it up now and dive in."
--Lisa Kohn, author of To the Moon And Back: A Childhood Under the Influence
