Dig Deep - Affect Change with Stories November

JCAN-MA six-week class Wednesdays, Nov 1 - Dec 6, 2023 7-8.30 PM (EDT)

Trying to convince people there is a climate crisis with common sense and science doesn’t work. People listen through their emotions, not through their reason. In this six-week class, you will learn a simple technique to write an emotional story from your authentic self. You will learn about the three voices of writing, and how to create an image/moment and list its 7 basic elements. You will also learn how to construct a story by stringing together bookended image/moments. The focus will be on constructing compelling stories from news or scientific articles that involve climate change and environmental justice issues. At the end of the class, we will have a public reading of our work. Whether you want to explain the science of climate change or the Jewish concept of repairing the world, learn to write from your deep, authentic voice. You’ll wind up writing your story which then becomes everyone’s story and creates a community to affect change.
