Join me this summer for “Sustaining Your Writing Life,” a five-week workshop I’ll be teaching for the Great Smokies Writing Program on Monday evenings 6-8:30 starting June 3rd (location TBA).
Do you long to write, but just can’t seem to work it into your life? Do your writing resolutions last about as long as your New Year’s resolutions to go to the gym? This class for beginning or experienced writers is an offshoot of the “Creating Your Writing Life” seminar offered by Asheville’s Flatiron Writers in April 2013, but students do not have to have taken the Flatiron Writers’ workshop to enroll. We’ll focus on practical ways to make writing an integral part of your life: establishing routines and rituals, enhancing space and environment, honing your writing process and building a writing community. For inspiration, we’ll read selections from High Tide in Tucson: Essays in Now or Never by Barbara Kingsolver, whose beautiful prose–about her life as a writer–will leave you aching to construct your own writing life.
