About the Event
Join us and writer-in-residence Kasia Merrill from 5:30-7:00PM on Thursday, November 30 for a generative workshop focusing on using gentle movement and breathing exercises to create new writing. Participants will be led through short exercises and be given prompts to dive deeper into their work or generate a new piece. Perfect for writers stuck in a rut, experiencing writer’s block, or who desire new ways to find creativity and inspiration. Writers of all genres and experiences are welcome. Events this season are sponsored by First Bank and the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts.
