CLASSES at the Joyful Jewel
Jumpstart Your Poetic Inspiration, Friday, March 15, 9:30am -12:30pm with Ashley Memory, $50
You can find inspiration for poetry everywhere—from reading newspapers and periodicals to mining your daily life and memory. We’ll improvise on sample poems written by other poets and participate in fun and collaborative exercises meant to spark your own imagination. Not only will you end up with three new poems of your own, you’ll leave with a never-ending inventory of ideas that can be used for not just poetry but short stories, essays, and more. Bring your favorite writing gear (notebook and pen/pencil or laptop) and get ready for new prompts, new inspiration, and instant feedback.
Write Way, Wednesday, March 27, 6:30 – 8pm, with Dori Dupre, free
Grief is as individual and unique an experience as you are an individual and unique human being. Grieve the Write Way workshops are opportunities to process and work through your grief with the art and experience of narrative, prompt and journal writing. Dori will provide notebooks, pens and the facilitation.
