New Orleans | July 19-21, 2016

For our New Orleans workshop, we are very grateful to be hosted by Press Street. The workshop will be an intensive three-day experience of writing exercises, feedback and a handful of readings. We will also bring a visual artist, a meditation guide and a local writer into the conversation during each visit. The idea for the workshop in general comes from the desire to treat writing as a life practice that helps you engage differently with the world, develop empathy and humility, and to explore creative thinking. As with other practices, dedication and play are important, a published product far less so.

Whether you leave the workshop with a notebook full of fresh prose, ideas, insights into your creative process, and also whether or not you want to share your writing, is all up to you. We will also read and converse about relevant writings–see the Reading List page for a sampling.

Workshop Schedule:

Tuesday, July 19 through Thursday, July 21 from 6-8pm each evening.
