In this workshop participants will investigate published memoir to see what makes the genre work. Participants will engage in in-class writing exercises and have the opportunity to conference with the instructor and their peers to get Gateless feedback on their own writing.
What is Gateless?
Gateless Writing is a method of teaching the art and craft of writing using creative brain science, ancient non-dual teachings and highly-effective craft tools. Through retreats, editing intensives and salon-style workshops, the Gateless methodology has shifted hundreds of writers’ lives, built successful writing careers and allowed writers to access the creative genius inside.
Does it work?
Gateless Writing has created unprecedented success. It builds books that get top agents, go to auction, get six-figure deals and receive national media attention. And something else happens, Gateless Writing influences every part of your life. Writers begin to see how big their power in the world really is. The model creates a certain magic, where we bust out of limitations (they aren’t really there), and reach beyond the original vision to create expansive, magnanimous lives that match what we have to offer.
“We think there are all these gates keeping us from the speaking gig, the performance stage, the sold-out workshops, the big five publishers–but it’s not true, there’s another way, and it’s Gateless. Gateless is so transforming, so revolutionary.”
–Karen Kenney, memoirist, spiritual mentor, founder of Quest Yoga and certified Gateless teacher.
“I love Gateless method because it seems to be about finding what is already there but maybe covered up with fear, or a dizzying sense of I’m not enough. Gateless allows the very best in everyone to slowly come up to the surface and take a turn in the sunshine. You don’t have to become someone else, Gateless is a process of loving what you already are and then stretching from there.”
–Minton Sparks, award-winning performance artist and Gateless certified teacher.
