Rain or Shine: Finding Your Joy on the Page
Jeni De La O

In this workshop, we will examine the poem WE REAL COOL to gain an understanding of how joy can take many different forms on the page. Rather than focusing on generating emotional context for the reader, we’re taking a step back to find YOUR joy on the page. Learn more and register.


Animals, Land, & Plants, Oh My: Nature as Metaphor
Kayla Degala-Paraiso
Saturday, September 18th from 12:00pm - 3:00pm

Have you always felt a kinship with a specific animal or plant? Does the landscape outside your window feel like the embodiment of your inner world? Looking for the backbone that'll tie your latest project together? In this workshop, we'll pay homage to our favorite creatures and/or natural features by using them as metaphors in our writing. Learn more and register.


We're also offering Free Saturday Sessions in October, November, and December! Check here for more info about each of our upcoming sessions.
