Writing an Imaginative Autobiographical “Tale”


Course Code: WWWR Category:


While Carl Jung famously said that “psyche creates reality,” authors and artists know that the reverse is also true. Throughout history, fantastic words and surreal images put down on paper have come to long and lasting life in the minds and hearts of readers. In this class we will use imagination and experience to create a tale that touches on the mystery of the archetypal journey we are all traversing as we journey from day to day, and year to year. In this online class we will use the details of daily life to create a tale touching on universal themes and worth telling to friends and relatives. Prompts could include a favorite memory, or the granddaughter living far away, the squirrel sitting on the porch every morning, or that lake close to the house where you were born. Our sessions will focus on the main character, environment, plot, and ending. By the end of our fifth session, you will have a first manuscript of an amazing tale talking about one old and vital memory that longs to be remembered and retold anew!
