WRITE NOW – RIGHT NOW

October 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on October 19, 2021 at 4:00 pm

Enjoy putting pen to paper with your thoughts and stories?  Join us for a new and different kind of writing group. Creative writing prompts will be given at the end of each meeting.  When we meet, we will discuss our findings, share our writing, and get to know our own unique inner talents!  Give us a call at 967-2778 or send an email to mlbgraves@gmail.com to get on board.

SESSIONS WILL RUN EVERY OTHER WEEK ON TUESDAYS @ 4:00 PM (VIA ZOOM and/or IN PERSON – COMMUNITY ROOM)

Each of us has a story to tell. Perhaps some of you have engaged in journal writing as a way of capturing the fleeting images and memories resulting from the past several months of isolation and social distancing. We would like to invite you to transform those images and memories into stories or essays, for some of you, maybe even poetry. While writing workshops work best in person where members collaborate and offer personal, constructive critique, we offer an online approach that we believe will work well with interested participants. Every two weeks, after the initial introduction, we will provide a prompt in the form of a question or directive. For example, we might begin with this prompt: “I don’t know why I remember but . . .” Memories are a great way to tap into the creative process and this type of writing often leads to more imaginative writing. When we zoom together after two weeks, you can choose to share (or not) and hopefully each participant will respond to the reading in a constructive, non judgmental way. During our initial meeting we will be open to suggestions regarding the time interval, the format and possible prompts. As we approach fall and particularly winter this writing workshop will provide a wide window into the possibilities of written expression. What we decide to do with these exercises will be up to you!
