Join author Lisa Pasold for a discussion about the evolution of a daily writing practice, be it journaling or fiction, poetry or quickly-jotted observation. We will discuss how a daily practice is an anchor, creatively and spiritually, and how material from daily writing—interior, messy and private—can be shaped into crafted public work. The workshop includes a variety of writing prompts and approaches. The discussion will wrap up with a practical discussion of how to develop a personal strategy to find time for daily writing. Lisa Pasold is an award-winning novelist, journalist and poet. She has led writing workshops from Dawson City in the Yukon, to L.A. and Paris.
Space is limited, so please register in advance here.
Participants of the workshop will receive a 10% discount for the store.
