    Creative Nonfiction: Writing Your Birth Story, Online Google Hangout  Session 2

    Workshop will be held through Google Hangouts 


    Workshop hours: 

    Thursday 6:30 PM - 9:30


    Our birth stories are wonderful mementos for our children and important processing for ourselves. Birth stories reveal joy, strength, fear, disappointment, regret, peace, empowerment, and almost every other emotion on the human spectrum. Join doula and writing teacher Sarah Allen-Short for a three-hour workshop intended to help you write and your birth story. We will use the tool of writing to explore our experiences and memorialize them, with all the complexity and power that these stories so often imbue. These workshops are co-sponsored by toLabor and Life in 10 Minutes


    Once you register, details will be sent to you. We will be using Google Hangouts as the delivery method. If you are unfamiliar with this service, you will just need a Google account to participate (you may watch a tutorial ). Feel free to take more than one class if you have more than one birth to write about. If you're interested in writing your birth story but are not available on these days, let us know and we will consider new times for the fall.


    Sarah Allen-Short is an experienced teacher, writer, and group facilitator. Her writing experience includes a 15-year professional career doing academic, business, and technical writing, including ghostwriting two business books, one a bestseller and dozens of articles and bylines in publications like the Washington Post, Business Week, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, and more.  A former marketing executive, childbirth assistant, co-founder of the popular toRaise Questions doula podcast, trained postpartum peer counselor, facilitator of a Richmond mothering group since 2007, and mother/wife/sister/daughter, Sarah has a wide variety of experiences she brings to bear on helping people explore their work and personal experiences creatively.
