LIVE! Writing Your Cultural Stories

LIVE! May 31st at 2 pm (eastern)

Have you always wanted to write about crossing cultures?  Then this one is for you!

This webinar is an opportunity for you to explore your cross cultural experiences (travel abroad or otherwise) through writing!  I know how many times I have said “I wish I had more time to write” as a vehicle to explore, reflect, and examine patterns in my own cross-cultural journeys. This will allow you to do so without needing to take a writing course or to worry about the judgment of a grade.

Through writing prompts and discussion, we’ll explore your stories that have helped to shape moments in your life.  By dedicating time on this webinar to reflect and “put pen to paper” you will begin to see yourself from a different perspective, examine culture through a different lens, exercise your creative voice, and expand your portfolio for a career across cultures.

Note: You do not need to see yourself as a writer or blogger prior to attending this webinar! Whether you’ve written anything before or published a book does not matter – what matters for the purpose of our time together is an open heart and that you show up and dedicate the time!

“I had not written a word since I repatriated. sort of turned to “mute”. I desperately wanted to get back to writing – anything would do. I loved the prompts and they got my creative juices flowing. I appreciate the help to get back to something I love doing.” – Sibylla G.

“Excellent. Got me to start writing about my cultural experiences and to overcome my fear of writing. Felt very safe to begin writing.” – Patricia D.

“This webinar helped me to see that I have something to say and also to see how cathartic it can be for me to write. I’m really glad I did this writing webinar because it helped me to see how much I love writing. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any writing and this really makes me want to continue.” – Julie W.

“This webinar allowed me to set a dedicated time to focus on my writing. There are often so many thoughts and ideas that go through my head that at time when I do sit down to write the blank page is intimidating the prompts helped a lot.” – Kory S.

“I had no specific expectations coming into this webinar and can say I thoroughly enjoyed it!” – Adriana G.
