Dream Interpretation for Writers

Using Dream Interpretation to Enrich Your Fiction and Improve the Critique Experience

Offered by Laura K. Deal, Ph.D.

Certified Dream Work Facilitator and 20-Year Veteran of Critique Groups

Curious about your dreams? Curious about how to make dreams in your fiction richer with symbolism? Dreams and fiction share the language of metaphor, so understanding dreams is an excellent skill for writers to develop. Come learn about dream reading, a simple technique for exploring dreams in groups, and an important tool in any writer’s toolbox for giving and receiving critique, creating richer characters, and playing with imagery. We’ll combine writing prompts with dream reading, offering everyone opportunities for insights into dream imagery and self-awareness.
