Join me for this workshop offered by Writespace! You can be located anywhere in the world for this, and writers of all genres and levels of experience are welcome. You can become a member here, or register as a non-member.
Wondering what to write right now and how? Finding it hard to process the pandemic and all of the surrounding turmoil? This gentle, restorative workshop will use writing exercises and prompts to help you re-center and enjoy writing again during and after a very difficult time. All genres are welcome, from non-fiction to poetry to speculative fiction to memoir—or explore a different genre in each prompt! Over the course of this three-hour workshop, we’ll talk about the pandemic and its effect on us as writers, our fears and hopes, and what it means to practice writing. We’ll use several ideas for writing exercises from Natalie Goldberg’s classic Writing Down the Bones to get reaccustomed to writing without self-censoring, to encourage writing with intent, and to have fun writing playfully. We’ll share our in-workshop writing and talk about presenting new work with confidence. Writers can be of any experience level; feel free to bring works already in progress or simply come ready to renew your love of writing in a supportive, affirmative environment where all creativity is valued and celebrated. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/renew-your-love-for-writing-all-genre-generative-tickets-154479523413
