I have a very special Thanksgiving treat for all of you!
Please enjoy the first of a two-part interview with Susan Wooldridge (pictured left), author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words and Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing and Freeing Your Creative Process.
I had the pleasure of attending one of Susan’s amazing workshops several years ago. We discussed some techniques she uses, drawing on her experience teaching kids in juvenile hall, that help create a safe space for writing, allowing people to reconnect with the part of themselves that loves language.[audio: http://yaelwrites.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Woolridge_Interview_Part_1.mp3]
Thanks to Kelli Wise for editing and to Brett Bakshis for the music. Tune in next week for part two!
