The Writer's Quest: Breaking Conventions in Creativity

Devel­op a new aware­ness of the sto­ries that col­lect inside each of us and the unique dynam­ics of the body/​mind with mem­o­ry, feel­ings, images, and the imag­i­na­tion that we can har­vest to write sto­ries. In a spir­it of relax­ation and play San­dra offers exer­cis­es that com­bine easy body stretch­es to awak­en the body with poems and images that unleash mem­o­ry, the imag­i­na­tion, and spon­tane­ity. Then in-class writ­ing exer­cis­es enable par­tic­i­pants to dis­cov­er and write their inside sto­ries. Aspects of the writ­ing craft required for devel­op­ing char­ac­ter, place and plot are also includ­ed. Wear loose, com­fort­able cloth­ing and bring an emp­ty notebook.
