Catch a Dream reading and discussion
free and open to the public

Join Wendy Brown-Baez for a reading from her newly released novel Catch a Dream, which takes place in Israel in 1988-1990. Wendy will discuss the process of changing her book from a memoir to a novel and answer questions about her experiences of living in Israel for 3 years. 
 
Catch a Dream: A woman’s healing journey begins in a country embroiled in relentless turmoil.

In Israel, the first Intifada has just begun. Palestinian frustration for a homeland erupts in strikes, demonstrations and suicide bombings. Lily Ambrosia and Rainbow Dove arrive in Haifa with their children on a pilgrimage to sow seeds of peace. Lily falls in love with the land itself, with its people, and with Levi, a charming enigma, dangerous but irresistable. Her son rebels against the lifestyle she has chosen and war with Syria looms on the horizon. Will she be able to stay? What does she have to give up and what will she be able to keep?
 
"Because the authenticity of the character arises from Wendy Baez’s own emotional complexity, her supposedly fictional novel took me on one of the most authentic searches for self I have ever read."-- Jerry Waxler, author of Memoir Revolution: Write Your Story, Change the World
 

Saturday Oct 20 10:00- 5:00
In Our Own Voices Writing Intensive   

 
Using simple writing exercises that tap into our intuition, we will generate material that brings to the surface the story we are compelled to tell. Intuitive writing gives us a key to unlock our own unique and authentic voice. We will create beauty and clarity on the page through the power of our innate wisdom. What makes stories come alive on the page? How can we inhabit our characters and “show” rather than “tell”? How can we use the ordinary as a setting for extraordinary events and move the story along by the character’s inner conflicts?  Whether you are interested in personal writing or fiction, this workshop will give you tips to make your work sing.
 
In the morning, we'll generate material and explore ways to unlock our inner voice. In the afternoon, we'll discuss the elements of craft with a focus on character development and the use of tension to keep readers enthralled.

Writing is a way to listen to the deepest self and inner voice of wisdom. What tools enable us to access the deep voice of guidance? What stories do we feel compelled to share? How is writing to heal different from journaling?
