Joey GarciaNot an AOF event. But we had to share the news, it's so cool.

Think back on your journey from religion to reason. Was it a single "aha" moment or a slow tidal change?

Pop media are soaked & sogged with stories of faith, but rarely do you hear the other side. Now Reason Center will host a workshop on writing your journey, so others can share the epiphanies, the eureka moments, and perhaps find their own enlightenment. This workshop will show how to bridge faith-based divides, how dismantle biases, and how to manage the fear of revealing your personal details. At the end you will have a rough draft of a memoir, story or personal essay, and a clear direction for its completion.

Pre-registration required. Fee, just $32. Your guide will be Joey Garcia. To register in advance, see https://www.paypal.me/askjoey, or contact her at the email address below.

Of course this is the same wise Joey who writes the "Ask Joey" relationship advice column for the Sacramento News & Review, and has spoken to AOF previously. She is a talk show host with NewsRadio KFBK, the on-air Relationship Expert for Fox 40 News, and the author of the award-winning book, When Your Heart Breaks, It's Opening to Love. Originally from Belize, Joey launched the first-ever Belize Writers' Conference in 2018, featuring two New York literary agents as faculty.
