About this event

THREE workshops: Thursday evenings, November 4, 11, & 18, 7:00-8:30pm CT

~~$100 for all three; 50% discount for students, seniors, & the underemployed~~

In this engaging and surprising 3-session workshop, award-winning GARY BARWIN will lead participants on a series of writing exploits, exploring writing as both a destination and a means of getting there. He’ll introduce strategies and approaches for taking risks and breaking boundaries, ways of trampolining and trapdooring into new places with poetry and prose & points in between. Participants will explore new possibilities for creation as well as new ways of thinking about writing. They’ll road test a bunch of different approaches, write collaboratively, and try out an array of fun and generative writing activities.
