The Writing Garden: A 3-day writing workshop w/Indira Ganesan

February 23 @ 10:00 am - February 25 @ 1:00 pm


Explore the possibilities in creating a writing practice. In this class, we will use prompts to create short writing exercises. By sharing the raw work with each other, we will begin to work with these starts, weed and cultivate to create the beginnings of short stories or essays. We will let them grow, and discover the ones we want to work with, to nurture to full growth. We will also read short, published works to further inspire our creative work. Writing, like gardening, takes practice, experimentation, and revision. Come into the writing garden and play!
