Writing One’s Personal Myth: A Writer’s Retreat with Dennis Patrick Slattery

Writing has the capacity to mend some tear in the fabric of our fiction, the storied self that is always plotting its course both within and without. By exposing to the open air of prose what afflicts, wounds, emblazons the scar tissue of resentments, hurts, slights, wrongs, wrong paths chosen, one has the opportunity to close the gap or the gape in the soul-holes of one’s being.
