I am really looking forward to six evenings of writing together with with folks. Take some time to sit and honor your thoughts, your inner life. You might journal, begin a letter, describe some amazing thing you saw today, or write a few words in a loved one’s memory.
We begin the 90-minute class by checking in. Then I’ll share an excerpt from a poem or essay or story. We will talk about a technique the author uses in that piece.

And then we will write from a prompt. I like to time our writing bursts. Having a time limit somehow encourages the mind to relax. That’s good for the language to flow. Having a time limit somehow also encourages risk. That’s good for getting at the truths you want to remind yourself.
I can’t believe the year is half over. We’ve been through a lot, with more to come. It’s September. Fall is the season of harvest and regeneration. Let’s write together. Register here.
Six Wednesdays in the Fall: September 2 and 16; October 7 and 21; November 4 and 18 at 5pm eastern.
