The Writing Room at the 100 Men Hall strips away filters that keep writers from writing. Writers are encouraged to use their own narratives to write stories that are transformative. In every workshop, the participants write, without using critical thinking, allowing their personal experience to emerge on paper. This is a method of writing Rachel Dangermond studied in Woodstock, NY called Authentic Writing.
The workshop provides a technique that allows creativity to flow and writing to happen. The result is writing that is fresh, immediate, and pulsing with life. Participants are amazed to read their own results after using this approach.
