Join us on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at 2:00pm Central for a generative workshop with featured poet Natasha Mijares.
AS IT IS WRITTEN SO IT SHALL BE DONE
This writing workshop invites participants to explore the process of fate-fulfillment through writing. We will be looking at excerpts from writers and artists who write in the imperative—Yoko Ono, Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies and more. Through exploring the offerings of many voices, we are empowering the time-bending property of writing to discover truth, fantasy, and intention. This workshop is open to ages 18 and over and appropriate for any genre of writing.
