Saturdays, April 20 and 27
12:3 - 4 p.m.
Use your own life stories to explore the connection between your senses, emotions, and thoughts. Through accessible tools, such as visualizations, simple physical exercises, and writing prompts, develop your voice as a writer.
Inhabit the world of your writing through the senses.
Slow down and settle into your writing to uncover intrinsic structure.
Set authentic creative goals and learn to work within them effectively.
Complete two short pieces.
The focus of the approach is on what is felt and "tangible" rather than abstract ideas of "goodwriting." Writers of all levels and genres learn to bypass judgment and find pleasure in all the stages of craft. To find out what people are saying, click here.
