Series: Finding the True Hero of Your Story
What are the qualities of a hero? In many traditions, the hero must be both brave and humble, strong yet vulnerable. A true hero may fail repeatedly but always returns to try again. In this retreat, we will reflect on the characters and stories of the past to determine our heroes of the present. We will write to connect with a fictional hero as well as the one that dwells within each of us. If we are willing, the writing will lead us into a new place of strength. This retreat is open to all types of writers in all stages of learning the craft.
Theresa Washburn works as the director of member affairs for Organic Valley. She has spent the past 15 years learning to find courage and hope through writing. She lives in the Driftless Area with her family and a dozen pets.
