Course Description:

Join us each month as we explore outdoor settings around the Monterey Peninsula and use timed writings to coax spontaneous thoughts onto paper. During each session we walk in silence, write, then read aloud to each other without comment. Our writing process often takes us to an intersection of spontaneity and authenticity, where the personal and universal sit side by side. Please bring a pen and notebook, chair or cushion, and wear comfortable shoes and clothing.


Tuition: $45.00
