MEETS 2nd SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH 1-4 pm
In this group, we will write together, engaging a variety of prompts to get our words flowing and those ideas, images, and voices that are present inside of us out onto the page. This group offers the space to play, inquire, get in touch with your writer-self, and write through any blocks or feelings of creative “stuck-ness.” By the end of the 3-hour session, you will have new material to develop into poems, essays, blogs, or stories as well as ideas for future writing.
WHO IS THIS GROUP FOR?
This writing group is appropriate for anyone
- who wants to express themselves in writing of any genre
- who wants to begin or reinvigorate a writing practice, either with a particular goal in mind or for personal self-reflection
- who is interested in blogging, writing poetry, essays, short fiction, or journaling
- who wants to generate a new body of writing to work with
Wellspring Writers come together to write in a creative community. We write in response to a variety of prompts designed to get our words flowing and to tap into the well of voices, stories, and images we all have within us. Sharing your writing is always optional. If you choose to do so, your new writing will be treated as such--a new creative seed to be further developed. Group participants will respond to your new writing by remarking on what resonated with them or what stood out as being particularly strong or powerful.
From our interactions, we sustain a welcoming and inspiring community together. Through lively online discussions and responding to one another's queries and creativity we come to know one another and support one another as we find our voice, identity, and expression
To ensure an environment conducive for creative exploration and experimentation, participants are kindly asked to follow specific participation guidelines. Please review them to see if this group will suit your needs and expectations and please contact Liz with any questions.
