Have you ever felt as if you were wandering aimlessly with your writing, lost in the labyrinth without a clue how to get home again? Take heart! This one-day workshop explores the uncanny parallels between the writing life and Homer’s Odyssey by helping you visualize your work as a mythic journey. This intensive but entertaining approach will help you identify which stage you are on now, and through a series of writing exercises and practices that provide a map to guide you along the final stages of the publishing adventure.

**Class price includes a copy of The Book of Roads – Travel Stories from Michigan to Marrakech.
