Course Description:

On one Saturday morning a month, we gather to write, to discover ourselves and the world. What most draws me to writing is the discovery that occurs through the process of inquiry. Put a few words on the page and you’ll be surprised by those that follow. Writing is a form of reflection that clarifies and deepens understanding like nothing else. This is a writing group for everyone who has a life and thoughts and curiosity about that life and the larger world. Come write with me to honor complexities and contradictions, and to celebrate the mystery of being alive.
