FICTION WRITING WORKSHOP WITH CAITLIN HICKS

 

 

My life and work have been profoundly affected by the central circumstance of my existence: I was born into a very large military Catholic family in the United States of America. As a child surrounded by many others, I wrote, performed and directed family plays with my numerous brothers and sisters.

 

Since then, I have become an author and international playwright. Monologues from several of my plays are featured in Smith & Kraus’ series Best Women’s Stage Monologues (New York). I wrote the play, later adapted for the screen, Singing the Bones, which debuted at the Montreal World Film Festival to stellar reviews and has screened around the world.

 

 While A Theory of Expanded Love is my debut novel, I have published several short stories and worked as a writer for CBS and NBC radio, and have performed my fiction and non-fiction for Canadian Broadcasting Co national radio. My writing has been published in The San Francisco Chronicle, The Vancouver Sun, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Fiddlehead Magazine, Knight Literary Journal and other publications.

 

My path as a writer has always been a personal spiritual journey, although my work is not religious. I am drawn towards stories that I don’t hear often in the mainstream culture. I enjoy bringing to life personal, pivotal stories which have the kernel of transformation and which connect us all to each other.
