Joan Wickersham Jump Starts for Cold Mornings June 16 to June 21, 2024 Time 9 am - 12 pm Discipline: Nonfiction/Memoir Open To All On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options
This Workshop Is Full

How do we free ourselves from what we think we’re supposed to be writing, and head for the more interesting territory of messy experience and complex emotion? In this generative workshop, we’ll work from prompts suggested by our own lives and experiences, writing in class every day and finding rich new resources to draw on for future work. 

Please bring a notebook and a few photographs of personal significance.
