Join My Prompt Class at Politics & Prose Bookstore on 6/13!

I’ll be offering another, all-new section of my popular Right Brain Writing prompt classes at Politics & Prose bookstore in DC (Connecticut Ave branch) on Wednesday, June 13. I’d love to see you there…we have a lot of fun, and get some really interesting writing down on the page.

Right Brain Writing: The Art of Losing
Wednesday, June 13
6:30 p.m.– 9 p.m.

Explore your creative side in this session, one of a series of stand-alone classes with prompts designed to get your subconscious flowing. Through guided exercises, we’ll focus on writing about the variety of losses we have encountered in our lives, the large and small absences that inform our landscape. Elizabeth Bishop calls it “the art of losing”; where is the art in saying goodbye? No writing experience necessary! This is a great class for beginners and also for those fiction writers and/or memoirists with more experience who might be stuck in their current projects and are looking for a jolt of inspiration. Our goal is to have fun in a supportive, nurturing environment and to go home with several promising pieces to work on further.  Please bring lots of paper and pen/pencil or a fully charged computer. Note: new exercises!
