“I learned that writing is not formulated in my head, first—it is what magically emerges when I put pen to paper in a playful way, with a time limit, and with a variety of prompts. The method encourages my brain to loosen its grip on my creativity. The best part of the class is writing in a safe, supportive environment with an inspiring teacher and motivating classmates. I really loved the instructor’s ability to mine whatever/however attendees share (struggles, triumphs, insights) and reframe them in a way that taught deep lessons about good writing. The other wonderful aspect of the class was seeing how participants used different styles and processes to create and recreate.”
