Through Open the Doors Workshop, Baron Wormser will be hosting three, five-day workshops this summer.
Through this workshop we intend to open doors for each participant that have not been opened before. We invite each participant to start afresh with each piece of writing, to find new ways through the thicket of the self and welter of the world.
