Instructor: WriteSpace, Cindy Childress
$115 non-members / $95 for WriteSpace and Hines Center members
Time: Tuesdays from 6:30-8 p.m; April 25th- -May 30th
Ever wonder how writing could change your life? Come discover how the practice of writing can empower us to understand who we are, how we are made, and what we seek to say with our lives. In this workshop we will engage unique literary tools that let us reflect upon powerful incidents in our past and explore our memories through poetic language in order to discover meaning and healing. By building patterns of creative language and retraining our thoughts, we will work toward bridging the ruptures within the split self to reclaim a more unified whole and perhaps also disrupt unhealthy patterns such as overspending, emotional outbursts, the inability to say “no,” and other daily personal challenges. Each week we will examine a new aspect of the formation of our selves and study a new poetic device, and then we will apply what we have learned during dedicated writing time. We will craft drafts of new poems, consider the discoveries we encounter, and share our healing journey through writing together.
