Writing Our Siblings: Our best friends, our worst enemies

with Nina Boug Lichtenstein and Jennifer Lang

Thursday, August 24, 10:00 – 13:00

“Do you know what friendship is… It is to be brother and sister; two souls which touch without mingling, two fingers on one hand.” – Victor Hugo

Some of us grow up close with our siblings, some of us not. Others become estranged as adults, or find a way back to closeness as the years go by. There can be love, play, alliances, and respect in a sibling relationship, but there can also be rivalry, jealousy, struggle, and abuse.

In this workshop, we’ll talk about how these complex relationships bolster or belittle us, challenge and reward us. We’ll read short pieces about siblings and write, share, respond to each other’s writing. Open to all levels, all genres. Light refreshments will be served, and tea is always on the table.  

Details: 420nis if you register by August 5 and 460nis subsequently; non-refundable if you cancel within one week of the workshop and your place cannot be filled.
