Writing the Body: Poetry Writing Prompt Workshop
In this monthly workshop, we will write in response to prompts. The prompts will begin with our bodies (muscles, five senses, physical memories) and may bring us anywhere. As we can slowly stretch our body to allow an opening, we will focus on our physical experiences and related memories in order to understand them better. Writing, which includes naming our experiences, is part of how we understand and navigate our world.
Our time together will be spent generating writing in response to prompts. Writers will be invited to read their in-class writing, if they choose to. The focus will be on the creative process (rather than editing and revising the work.)
Writers of all levels welcome.
Please come with a writing surface (clipboard or book) and paper or charged laptop.
You are welcome to register for one or more classes. Each one will be unique and stand on its own.
