Writing Out Loud Workshop
There is a lot going on in our lives right now -- things to look forward to, things to worry about, things to be excited about. Sometimes it can be hard to find the space for expressing your thoughts and ideas in a creative format, and yet doing so can make us feel much more connected to ourselves and to the people around us. Join us for a virtual afternoon of self-expression and creative fun. We will draw on all of our senses to feel more alive and in the moment.
We will use objects and sensory materials to help generate our creativity and develop group connections. We will write stories, collaborate on a group poem, and engage in some energizing improvisational and experiential activities to loosen up our minds and get our ideas flowing freely. We will also do an activity to celebrate the Winter Solstice and its promise of more light. No prior writing experience is needed -- just a willingness to try new ideas and be a supportive member of the class. We will meet virtually on zoom.
