The workshop at the festival

Some notes on the festival taken from Federica Sgaggio's blog.  I can't wait to do this workshop. I've never done anything like it before.

Would you like to write your own piece of fiction, poem, screenplay, or get started with your novel having , , Anthony Glavin, , Celia de Fréine, Niamh MacAlister and at your side?
Well: this is exactly what you are supposed to do on Friday, 4th May, from 9.30 to 18, during the workshop “- In ogni storia c’è un milione di storie”, our Festival’s central event (, agriturismo Corte Castelletto).
In order to make everyone comfortable in using their own language, we will have the assistance of two professional interpreters from the Italian Associazione nazionale interpreti di conferenza professionisti (Aiti).

This seminar is all about stories: how they can be dismantled and reassembled into new and unexpected shapes and fashions; how they can change their own natures and rationales; how they can be manoeuvred and pushed and pulled and stretched and shrinked and shaked, and torn, and finally rebuilt.
You will meet an actor (, who will tell us the germinal story, from which anyone will extract their own bits and pieces by asking him questions).

Then, you will attend Fabio’s monologue, which is the outcome of the “contaminations” of the initial story.
Any of us will then have room to write their own story. We will afterward edit and collect them in an anthology along with the stories written by the Irish authors and the teachers from ònoma.
Info and booking:

A journalist (Luigi Grimaldi, who will drive the story into a newspaper’s piece).
A writer (myself, searching for raw matter to put together into the short story she’s inclined to tell).
An editor (, whose peculiar task will be to discover stories and characters and settings cuddled up between the lines).
And two Systemic psychoterapists from Centro Milanese di Terapia della Famiglia () and Episteme, the Turin section of the CMTF, (). Both of them will be tracking down key-points and keystones, to unravel threads and enlighten the germinal story under a new spotlight.
