Generative Workshop with Camille Dungy

from 30.00

Join us for an inspiration boost. In this 2-hour session, we'll explore various strategies for how to get started, how to keep going, and how to improve what you've already written! This is a mixed genre class, welcoming poets, fiction writers, and nonfiction writers. No need to come with anything prepared, just bring an open mind and your favorite writing instruments (pen and paper, pencil and journal, a laptop with a quiet keyboard...whatever you use). You'll leave with some sprouted seeds, and the tools to build the sustainable greenhouses that will help your new starts thrive.
