WRITING NATURE WORKSHOPS™

A WORKSHOP FOR YOUR UNFOLDING, EXPLODING INNER WRITER

Terry Tempest Williams believes writing affords an opportunity to “imagine things differently.” Anne Tyler believes writing—as well as reading—offers “more than one life.” Through writing, Maya Angelou describes “trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how we feel, how we lose and stand up, and go from darkness into darkness.” Resonating with these pioneering women and literary beacons, I feel that the process of writing may indeed be daunting, freeing and transformational. In essence, it may be healing—an adjunct to insights already possessed. Given our complexities as humans, there is always more to understand. We are constantly learning who we are, striving for recognition from within ourselves as well as from each other. In a WRITING NATURE WORKSHOPS™, you are invited to experience the value and joy of expressing yourself through poems and stories—possibly discovering a thing or two along the way. Within a supportive workshop shared with a small group of participants, guided imagery, meditation, and writing cues will be offered.

As an Amherst Writers & Artists certified workshop leader, I will borrow from the AWA method formulated by Pat Schneider in Writing Alone and With Others (Oxford Press), using various prompts as a springboard from which to write. This method insures an affirmative and respectful approach to the narrator and writer in all of us.
