'Writing from the Body' Online Sessions
So often we think we need divine inspiration to write: in fact, inspiration is everywhere if our senses are awake. The human body is like a sensitive aerial that can be tuned to many strange and surprising channels.
Writing can help us gain clarity and become less rigid, to untangle from repetitive thought patterns and move in unexpected new directions. It works whether you consider yourself a writer or not.
It doesn’t matter where you start: it matters that you start. These classes will offer prompts and provocations to get us going. We’ll follow where our writing takes us, and there will be opportunities to share.
Sessions will be held via Zoom.
I know you are probably sick of being online, but you won't have to look at the screen much for these sessions, I promise. You will be mainly looking at your pen writing intriguing words across the page and listening to others' creations.
If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, you can watch this video to learn how it works. It's very simple!
