Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.
Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.
This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Meditation and mindfulness in their varied forms offer a way to become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. In this workshop, we’ll look at the ways that we can use them as tools in our writing practice to foster inspiration, flow, and a safe place within us for any challenging emotions that might arise, in addition to how exploring writing itself as meditation. With a discussion on mindfulness, a guided meditation, and writing exercise, this workshop is open to all.
