Course Description:

Join us each month as we explore inspiring outdoor settings around the Monterey Peninsula and use timed writings to coax spontaneous thoughts onto paper. During each session, we walk in silence, offer experimental prompts, write, then read aloud to each other without comment. Inspired by Natalie Goldberg’s rules, our writing process often takes us to the intersection of spontaneity and authenticity, where the personal and universal sit side by side.


Tuition: $45.00
