Writing through the Darkness: Nurturing creativity in troubled times
Facilitated by Eileen Garvin
4 week class, on-line, starts Tuesday, March 31, 2020
“Language is limited, it’s a faulty tool. But how high it lights the dark.” — Aimee Bender
Our lives as humans are dynamic, varied and constantly changing. Our days might be difficult, commonplace or extraordinarily beautiful. Writing is one way to find footing and maintain balance, especially during troubled times.
During this free, four-week class, students will receive writing prompts three days per week by email and will discuss their work during a once-weekly group video conference. Students can submit up to three pages of work for written instructor feedback at any time during the course.
Participation will be limited to 10 people and class starts Tuesday, March 31. The class is full. If you are interested in future classes, please contact the teaching artist:
