Course Description:

No matter our physical distance, writing brings us close––to ourselves and each other. Some days, despite my perpetual close proximity with myself, I can feel at a distance because of being in this unknown place. Who am I here and now? My journal has become a daily companion. I write to uncover, to dive, to contemplate, to reveal, to weep, to sing and dance, yes, especially these days we need to sing and dance. Come sing with me this fall, won't you? Each session includes two guided writing periods and an opportunity for those who wish to share something they've just written.
