Natural disasters can sweep in and change everything in an instant. In this workshop, the goal is to reflect and write.
Tropical Storm Irene tore through Vermont on Aug. 28, 2011, destroying lives, homes, businesses, roads and bridges. Seven people died in Rutland, Windsor and Windham counties.
Was your community and/or your family affected by this storm -- or another devastating natural disaster? Write a personal essay about the experience OR if you were not personally affected, find and interview someone whose life changed because of Irene or another event.
