Calling Creative Minds 18+

For anyone who wants more from the story, memory, event, or narrative they keep coming back to.

Arrive with a story in mind that needs watered. We'll begin the workshop by each selecting an element of research from the shelves. Bringing it back to circle, we'll use the research in a free-writing exercise that works to deepen the meaning of your essay.

Sharing is optional and highly encouraged.
