Invitation: Writing from the Center

Writing from the Center
with Holly Haworth

In this one-of-a-kind writing workshop, participants will have a chance to explore personal narrative and memoir, shaping memories into stories and writing from their experience and unique place. With nature as our grounding, we will explore how we can put the pieces of our lives together in a world that is broken and scattered, how the world is transformed and built by our stories, how we can heal and reform the lives around us through our words. We will explore artistic process, how to make space for creativity and sustain inspiration. We will address craft, how to work with narrative, scene, and description. We will write, share ideas, and move outward into the world with renewed vision, sharpened focus.

Saturday, March 19 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
at Community High School, 302 Campbell Ave. SE $55/person
Space is limited. We will workshop in small groups. Call or e-mail now to reserve your spot. (865) 801.0806 or olmountaingal@gmail.com
