Writing from a Novel (Mussar) Perspective
Get Unstuck

Kim Schneiderman

Friday 12:50 PM–1:50 PM The View Canceled, sorry

Sunday 5:45 PM–7:00 PM The View

How-To, Identity & Responsibility, Interactive

Every life is an unfolding story. Yet few of us take time to figure out what our story is about, why we’ve selected our chosen roles, or how the challenges that we face can help us develop the strengths we need to move to the next chapter. This series of structured writing exercises are designed to help people who feel stuck – in a dead-end job, a challenging relationship, or stage of life – get a fresh perspective on a familiar story….their own. Borrowing from the mussar (Jewish literary) tradition, we will explore how conflict creates opportunities for personal growth. One need not be a “good writer” to participate. A sense of adventure is all that’s required.
