What is it costing you not to have your voice, your story, in the world?

Have you been yearning to tell your intercultural, intersectional, or just plain hard-to-label story, but refrained due to the fear that no one will care, you won’t finish it, someone will get hurt, or any other reason(s)?
Learn the surprising secrets to writing or speaking about your life with confidence, focus, pleasure, courage...and zero resistance. The rewards: creative flow, connection, validation, respect, and even healing! 

Our stories and our feelings about them matter. Honor them.

If you’re thinking of creating a solo show, writing a memoir or personal essay, sharing at a storytelling venue, or delivering a keynote or TED Talk, click here.

Participants have gone on to have their work published and produced!

Others are now creating with confidence and inspiration!

It would be my privilege to help you tell your unique, shocking, hilarious, poignant, harrowing, unpredictable, impossible-to-label story.

  • We meet online so people in different countries can participate together.

  • You’ll receive helpful links to articles, videos, and podcasts between sessions.

  • Sessions are helpful for anyone with a story they want to share.

  • Facilitated by a professional actor/writer/speaker/producer with practical experience in this realm:

      ❀ Personal essays published in an anthology and a peer reviewed scholarly journal
      ❀ Keynotes and closing presentations delivered at conferences and corporate events

Hi, I'm Lisa and I publish as Elizabeth Liang.
I’m a playwright, essayist, actress, and speaker. Working with each participant, I use techniques that inspire clarity and confidence in writing. Thanks to my process, I’ve witnessed first-time writers finish a first draft, and professionals overcome their obstacles to finishing their essays/memoirs/keynotes/solo shows. My strength is transforming fear, doubt, and procrastination into a truthful and unique story that is yours alone to tell. My own intercultural stories can be found here (under “Storytelling”).

Why do I lead these workshops? 
While creating my first solo show, I realized for the first time that I had survived unusual challenges all at once, and my story was strong, interesting, and worthy. I want other women+ and nonbinary people to feel the same way.
