The Stories Held in Everyday Objects

The Stories Held in Everyday Objects

from 50.00

In this workshop, we will explore how deep contemplation of the emotions we invest in everyday objects can be a powerful starting place for expanding the imagination and developing character in both fiction and non-fiction. We will practice writing exercises that stretch both the imagination muscles and descriptive prose muscles. Come prepared to do some writing and imaginative thinking.

Please bring writing materials and a small object that is meaningful to you.
