Let's Get Messy is a sanctuary for writers, both newbies and old hands, who will create together in a stress-free, non-insistent, and fun atmosphere.
We'll open with an inspirational meditation for writers. I'll offer a brief teaching piece, using examples to illustrate the theme of the day. We'll dig into various writing exercises to get our creative juices flowing. Time for sharing (if desired). Feedback (if desired) will be based on the listener's personal experience of the writing, and not on critique.
These workshops are for you if stress-free, non-insistent, and fun are adjectives that speak to you. Workshops will be online* and are $48 each for 90 minutes paid in advance to secure your spot.
To avoid overwhelm, workshop participants will be limited to 8.
*I know some of you prefer an in-person experience so I am happy to offer this hybrid option.
