Would you like to add a spark of magic to your writing?
In this day-long workshop, we’ll explore ways to write holistically and intuitively, using the four elements of fire, water, earth, and air to bring power, depth, texture, and balance to our writing practice.
We’ll look for the workings of each element in short readings and discussion, and then bring some of these ideas to life with in-class exercises as well as writing experiments for you to try at home.
This workshop, led by an experienced teacher and editor, should be helpful for beginners in search of inspiration as well as experienced writers looking for fresh perspectives.
