Who attends Deborah's Offerings?
The Writer's Journal-Containing Our Stories
An example of a workshop offering, The Writer's Journal, combines the experience of creating an actual handmade journal with the exploration of new ways to understand and write about the stories of your life.
Co-lead by Deborah and Iris Graville, a writer, artist, and crafter of handmade journals.
In these 2-day workshops the skills of bookbinding provide powerful metaphors for self exploration. We will examine how the stories we tell about our lives may be limiting us and we explore options for rewriting those stories.

What it feels like at a Soundview Writers workshop:
The pen is an extension of your hand, the paper is a magnet pulling the words out of you. Suddenly you are writing from your heart, your stomach, your gall bladder, even your toes, you let all of you get into the act.
There it is - the sound of your own, unique voice and whatever it says you want to listen, you want to let it sing louder.
