Course Description:

I’m convinced that those who write creatively have more life! Don’t laugh, or do, but I’m convinced. Recently I came across a story I’d written about my father shortly after his death. Had I not written it when the experience was fresh and my heart terribly tender, I would have forgotten an important time he and I shared. In rereading it, he was alive again. If you want more life, more from life, more of the heart of it, join me once a month on Saturday mornings to reflect and mull, consider and question. This experience is for everybody—those who consider themselves writers and those who may not. Each session includes two guided writing periods and an opportunity for those who wish to share something they’ve just written.
