“Remember what it was to be me: that is always the point." - Joan Didion

Journals are beloved by scholars and historians as source material for gaining a more human understanding of the past, and we are living in historic times. In this workshop with Elizabeth O'Connell-Thompson, you are invited to explore journaling as an effective tool for making sense of the world around you, whether that means for yourself or future generations. You are an active participant in an exciting—if sometimes overwhelming—world; take a moment to find and listen to your own voice.
