River Writing – Wisdom of the Sages
Eight Thursdays starting May 13th to July 1st, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, virtual — $144 for the 8 week series
Poets have been leading us for centuries. During this 8 week writing workshop, we’ll be exploring the poets of past and present, and the sage advice they gifted the world. By bravely channeling pen to paper, we will be committing to our own discovery, growth, and truth. No previous writing experience required, only a commitment to show up. All genders welcome. All you’ll need to bring is a writing instrument, a notebook or paper, and your brave self.
What is River Writing? What you will learn.
“An opportunity to witness and be witnessed, a community-based writing practice, and a courage class. We keep our pens moving on the page as we write together with abandon, with no intention of making it good. Shamelessly shunning spelling and syntax, we invite words to flow unobstructed from a river of inner-narrative. Then we read to each other without preface or apology. No caveats. No comments. We listen to each other without offering praise or criticism.”
