Joan Wickersham Jump Starts for Cold Mornings June 26 to July 1, 2022 Tuition: $800.00 Workshop: 9 AM - 12 PM Discipline: Creative Writing OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

How do we free ourselves from what we think we’re supposed to be writing, and head for the sometimes scary—and always far 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, finding rich new resources to draw on for future work.

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