Showing up to write isn’t half the battle – it is the battle. This class will help you develop writing habits that will boost your confidence, help you find your “voice,” and keep your writing process in motion. We’ll investigate ways to playfully expand the imagination and increase creative output as well as work with prompts that will help inspire specific writing projects, and most importantly generate new work. Participants will leave with a tool kit to keep the writing flowing.
There will be no class session on Wednesday, April 12. Class will be held on April 5, April 19, April 26, and May 3 from 10am-12pm.
