Writing as Self-Exploration
Co-Sponsored by Hines Center for Spirituality and Prayer
Instructor: Dr. Cynthia Childress
How can writing your story change your life? In this workshop, we will strive to uncover the lessons of our lives through skillful and expressive writing. Participants need not have strong writing skills, perceived talent, or a clear perspective on their lives; those will be cultivated during the workshop! This six-week course engages unique literary tools that allow us to reflect on powerful events, unlock meaning, and explore powerful memories through the lens of poetic language.
There will be an additional voluntary reading of participants’ work in the Hines Center’s labyrinth after the session ends, open to friends.
TIME: Wednesdays 6:30-8 p.m., January 24th & January 31st and February 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, with optional reading on Wednesday, March 7, 6:30-8 p.m.
PRICE: $130 for Writespace members, $160 for non-members; After January 19th, $160 for Writespace members, $190 for non-members
