In these sessions, Zelda Lockhart, PhD utilizes the literary arts with other art forms as adjunct to help folks reach the goal of healing and transforming through the creation of a literary manuscript. Clients write their personal life experiences through a process Zelda calls "personal plot". The self discoveries encountered during the writing process do what literature can do, offer a long-term road map for the self and offer food, medicine and kinship for others. "Personal Plot" is helpful for having revelations and forward movement in your relationships with self, family, friends, intimate partnerships, work, and society at large. It is also helpful for reaching goals in life that have felt out of reach, barred by fear, self-judgement and other obstacles.
Wonderful byproducts of this method are the resulting works of poetry, personal essays, short stories and full-length manuscripts.
The accompanying book for these sessions is The Soul of the Full-Length Manuscript: Turning Life's Wounds Into the Gift of Literary Fiction, Memoir, or Poetry by Zelda Lockhart, PhD.
