Interested in moving forward with a writing project in the wake of what has been an extremely turbulent year?
Library members are invited to join us for a multi-genre workshop, “Finding Our Stories for a New Tomorrow,” with author and writing instructor Susan Tiberghien. Susan will share her approach, guide us through writing prompts, and answer any questions you might have about technique and/or practice. Read her workshop description and more about work below to learn more:
Where is the story? Margaret Atwood writes, “The story is in the dark.” We will find our way into the dark, into the unconscious and bring our stories into the light. As we read excerpts from Atwood, Toni Morrison, Orhan Pamuk, and Terry Tempest Williams, we will start to craft our own stories. Our voices will bear witness in these turbulent times.
Susan M. Tiberghien, an American writer living in Geneva, holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Philosophy with graduate work at the Université de Grenoble and the C.G. Jung Institute of Zurich. She is the author of four memoirs: Looking for Gold: A Year in Jungian Analysis, Circling to the Center, Side by Side, Footsteps; two writing books: One Year to a Writing Life, Writing Toward Wholeness: Lessons Inspired by C.G. Jung; and most recently, the 20th Anniversary Edition of Circling to the Center, An Invitation to Silent Prayer.
For over 20 years Tiberghien has been teaching workshops at C.G. Jung Societies, at the International Women’s Writing Guild, and at writers’ centers and conferences, in the U.S. and Europe. Recently she recorded online master classes for the Jung Society of Washington DC: Writing to the Soul, Seeing Beauty with Words, and Through Darkness to Light. An active member of International PEN, Tiberghien founded and directed the Geneva Writers’ Group for 25 years, bringing together over 230 English language writers. She is married, with six children, fifteen grandchildren, and one great grandchild.
