After 40, I began to wonder why Judy Blume, author of the famous Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret—every 80s girl’s guide to puberty—hadn’t written a sequel for the peri- and post- menopausal set. After all, we don’t just come “of age” when we’re teens; it happens at every stage of our lives. In this workshop, we’ll delve into what it means to write coming-of-age stories for Childhood, Adolescence, Adulthood, and the Golden Years. We’ll explore myths, rumors, archetypes, and rites-of-passage for each of these stages. Then we’ll mine our own memories and fears to tell the sorts of stories that serve as companions, confidantes, mentors, and friends for readers of every age.
