In the last post, Sam drew out the significance of the Liars Circle in Gold City. This, and a discussion of reader’s circles, made me think of Drew Lamm an artisanal leader in my community. Drew runs a writer’s workshop here. (Surely a liars circle is a writer’s workshop waiting to happen.)
We talk a good deal about how much a community needs story telling. But surely it also needs people like Drew who can create story tellers.
So Friday, I interviewed Drew and she was forthcoming, interesting and lively as she always is. Here she is talking about some of the things to think about when it comes to starting a workshop.
