Jeanne Gives Talk at ACT Seattle:  How I Got HOLD THESE TRUTHS From Page to Stage

Seattle friends, I would LOVE for you to join us on Saturday, August 2nd, at 2:00 pm for a talk I will be giving: HOLD THESE TRUTHS: FROM PAGE TO STAGE.  It’s been a 17-year long journey to write this play and “bring it home to Seattle,” and during this hour I’ll be sharing about all the blood, sweat and tears, the twists and turns, highs and lows, peaks and valleys of my HOLD THESE TRUTHS writer’s journey.  I’m exhausted and exhilarated just thinking about those 17 years just now!

I hope my journey will inspire yours.  For me, writing is one of the most difficult, and one of the most divine, occupations on the planet.  There is a mystical and fascinating danger to it.  I am always reminded of that Biblical image of Jacob wrestling with the angel, ’cause that’s what it feels like over and over again.  Wrestling to write.  And in the end, touching the divine.

Yes.
