Workshop Overview

Sometimes we need a boost of freedom! In this workshop we will spend the bulk of our time writing. Using sample stories, essays, poems, images and prompts we will explore new ideas and impose some interesting structures on our work. From list poems to short stories beginnings, memoir vignettes to letters, the main goal of this workshop is words on the page. We will chase the spark of inspiration. We’ll get outside to do some writing, share our work in a safe environment and turn down the pressure so we can enjoy.
