What story have you kept in the cocoon? What would happen if you wrote it out, just for you? In this dual focus workshop, we’ll consider our heroes, both famous and family, who have inspired us. Using them as inspiration, we’ll write our cocooned core stories. We’ll also explore the butterfly and hero metaphors via colored pencils and paper cutouts. Art supplies provided. No prior writing experience necessary.

($30 workshop fee includes a copy of November Butterfly; $5 suggested donation if attending reading only)






Tania Pryputniewicz HeadshotTania Pryputniewicz received her MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She teaches for San Diego Writers, Ink, Story Circle Network, and A Room of Her Own Foundation. Early praise for her first poetry book:

“In November Butterfly, the lyrical I looks into the mirror to find a different face with each pass. In this way, Pryputniewicz maintains the intimacy of the poetic I while expanding the personal lyric to a global resonance. As Ophelia, Jeanne d’Arc, Nefertiti, Amelia, Lady Diana, Marilyn and Sylvia come to reflect, we too find ourselves dissolving into the mirror.” –Nicelle Davis, author of Becoming Judas
