The Spirit in Spring
March 21, 28, April 4th: Three one-hour online classes. Contact Me for details.
Treat yourself to renewal. Join me for a quick burst of energy as spring arrives. Write open your heart as you write open your senses to shake off winter doldrums. The focus on sensory details will help you develop seeing, hearing, touch, smelling, and tasting and how to incorporate those into your writing. The focus isn’t so much on a finished essay as on learning how to richly describe them in writing. Each week’s class will build on the previous week, but much of our work will be on finding freedom in writing.
Building a House: Memoir and Personal Essay
June 5-July 2, 2017: Four one-hour online classes. Shanti Arts for details.
Finding the structure for your personal essay or book length memoir can be like building a house: creating a foundation, a structure, and adding details. Each week’s class builds on the previous week. We’ll have a place to share the work and gain feedback if you wish. At the end of the course, you’ll have a completed manuscript to submit.
October 16 – November 12, 2017: Four one-hour online classes. Shanti Arts for details.
Spiritual writing is, in brief, finding the voice that speaks from within and connects us to our deepest self. If you wish to share your work, you will have a place to post it for feedback, but that’s not required.
