Meta designs and facilitates a wide range of creative writing workshops for youth and adult learners. Many of his workshops are formulated so participants can explore writing techniques alongside universal themes or specific concepts. Meta is also able to design workshops tailored to your organization's needs. Below is just a small sample of the kinds of workshops Meta can offer.
More Than Maps
This workshop will explore the age-old question, "Where do you come from?" A village, a mountain, a beach? In this workshop, we will discuss the importance of place,
but also explore our origins that can't be found on a map.
What is culture? Is it important?
In this workshop, we’ll explore the different aspects of our own cultures, and discuss how we represent or connect with them while living in America.
Anchors and Sails
Geared more for teachers, administrators, or business leaders. In this workshop, we explore the power of storytelling, its ability to ground relationships, through deeper understandings of identity and empathy.
