Susan Dixon

I am a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and Cornell University. I have extensive experience leading in-person writing workshops and am now exploring moving that material online. I have recently published Seeking Quan Am: A Dual Memoir of War and Vietnam. Several potential workshops relate to this work.

About this course

It isn't theoretical any more: we are in a crisis now. The world - the entire world - is changing from day to day and hour to hour. All of us are being called on to help with the changing and to support each other. We are being shown for who we are, all of us, good and bad, noble and craven. 

Elders play a key role right now but most of us who fit that category have not been prepared. That's fine. None of us is prepared for this changing world and we are fast-tracking our training. Join a small group of inquirers who are curious about the deep work they can do to be more present right now. We will write, talk, and act, navigating the journey together.

Susan’s approach as a writing coach is one part companionship and one part soul-stretching encouragement.  Imagine meeting someone at a quiet bar who within minutes has you writing things on the back of a napkin you’ll never forget nor part with.  That’s Susan.   – C.G., workshop participant
