Trying to convince people there is a climate crisis with common sense and science doesn’t work. People listen through their emotions, not through their reason. In this six-week class, you will learn a simple technique to write an emotional story from our authentic selves. Whether you want to explain the science of climate change or the Jewish concept of repairing the world, learn to write from your deep, authentic voice. You’ll wind up writing your story, which then becomes everyone’s story and creates a community to affect change.
