Getting Unstuck workshop (4 Mondays, online)

July 18, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Writer’s Block: Is there such a thing? William Stafford’s solution was to ignore “high standards” and  “get into action.” Exercising our writing muscles without fear of “doing it wrong” helps prepare us for the moment when the “big poem” wants to be born. In this workshop we’ll play with ways to move through the doldrums and dread, including journaling, experimenting with forms, collaborating, and more.

Although the focus will be on poetry, strategies for “getting unstuck” apply to all manner of writing. 

Meets four Mondays, July 18 through August 8.

Registration deadline: Friday, July 15
