The Power of Writing Zoom Workshop

May 23 - June 6, 2020

Instructor: Susannah Risley

In this time of social isolation, how do we celebrate our feelings of oness with people and nature? Are we really so alone?

In this three-session (May 23, 30, June 6) workshop, we will use the writings of poets, nature and fiction writers throughout time who have explored these themes.

This workshop is interactive and open to a variety of writing forms. Participants will share their writing in a safe and comfortable environment.
