This is a group for anyone who feels driven to express themselves through writing, whether that's memoir, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, or journal writing. We will create a community and safe space to generate new writing, with an emphasis on getting passed "stuck" through movement--writing without worry about whether it's "good enough" or "worthy." There will be opportunities to share, but we will ask that any critiques happen at the request of the writer and happen one-on-one. The goal here is not to craft a particular piece, but write in the moment with freedom.
We'll meet weekly in the spirit of Martha Graham, who said:
“There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”
