Natural Connections: Deepening Your Creative Writing Practices
Instructor: Drea Edwards
Do you love stories and poems? Crave the inspiration, support, and space to try writing your own pieces? Come explore creative writing in a safe, nurturing environment -- discovering and fostering your unique creative process through deepening your connection to the worlds around and inside you.
In this three-part, weekly workshop series, each session will focus on different ways to connect with the natural world and your own senses, using these experiences to ignite, explore, and expand your creative process. In addition, you will learn simple techniques related to mindfulness and self-compassion to deepen your writing practice, and will receive feedback from the instructor on your creative work in a safe and nurturing way as you produce pieces across fiction, non-fiction, and/or poetry (your choice, as many or few pieces as you'd like.)
Each participant may then volunteer to share their favorite work with the group in our last class, and the instructor will publish their piece in an online blog journal this fall, if they’d like to be included in that. Registration is below.
