Advanced Writing Group

FALL 2019

Tuesday mornings, September 10 - November 12. 9:30-11:00 AM

This group is geared towards people looking to deepen their writing practice. The support of a tight knit community and weekly meetings over a period of three months will foster a more intimate relationship with your writing. Sessions will include lecture, group discussion, prompt writing, meditation, and slow walking. We'll analyze two books and shorter works as a way to inform our own writing.

There will be an opportunity to submit 20 pages at our last session, which I’ll provide feedback on. The pages can be part of a larger project or a selection of freewriting - your choice. Only available to students who’ve studied with me previously.

Meeting location and required texts delivered via email upon registration (below —> add to cart).

Cost: $200

SIT, WALK, WRITE

SIT, WALK, WRITE

Writing is an act of deep observation in the world. The smell in the air at the change of seasons. The mind’s idiosyncrasies. Timeless gesture. When combined, meditation, slow walking, and writing serve as a virtuous feedback loop. Each practice calls forth an awakening to the moment. An image you receive during slow walking finds its way into a poem you write later that day. Insight gleaned in sitting meditation becomes fodder for your memoir.

This fall, spend a day with teacher Sarah Sennott Cyr learning tools to cultivate a mindful writing practice. All experience levels welcome. Bring fast writing pens and notebooks.
