Impromptu writing online via Zoom!

October 31, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

$11.44

Come join us to write together from the comfort of home! This chance to meet via computer or mobile device (or by phone) is surprisingly akin to being together in “real life” (!!) and offers the added bonus of seeing each participant as though we are sitting across from each other.

We do short, timed writings together from writing prompts (or from words drawn from the magic word pouch!). We read our impromptu work out loud and receive good, specific feedback from the group, words or phrases that strike people, images, feelings the work evokes. (There is no critique, no advice for strengthening the writing, because this is spontaneous writing, not polished work.) This is a great chance to encourage agile writer’s minds, to stretch, to bypass our critic and censor, practice sharing our impromptu work, grow larger in ourselves. I think you’ll find these online sessions can be surprisingly warm and filled with lovely connections. 🙂
