BEGIN:VCALENDAR METHOD:PUBLISH VERSION:2.0 PRODID:-//Thomas Multimedia//Clinic Time//EN BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Exploring Creatively: Writing Workshop with author Sherri Flick UID:1452 STATUS:CONFIRMED DTSTART:20180404T090000Z DTEND:20180404T090000Z DESCRIPTION:Writing creatively involves cultivating the thoughts in your head as well as putting words on the page. In this morning workshop at Alloy 26, creatives of all types will practice observation skills and brainstorming exercises to help open up new ideas that feed into fresh writing.
Attendees will learn to observe without judgment, to use walking, talking, and list-making as a means of accessing new ideas, and then turn to the page and write.
No experience necessary. Both writers and non-writers welcome. Each attendee will receive a day pass to continue writing after the workshop in our coworking space, Alloy 26.
