Snapshots of Our Lives: A Poetry/Memoir Overnight Workshop
November 18, 2017 - November 19, 2017$120
Presenter/Author: Ann van Buren
Absorb the magnetic power of Mariandale’s meditative space and allow yourself uninterrupted time to bring memories to the page. We will meet and open creative channels through readings, discussions on craft, and free-writing. At 4pm, workshop members may share the beautiful grounds, prayers in the chapel, or time to work on a poem or short memoir, before dinner.
Writers are invited to share favorite poems or stories in the evening, or to spend time working on a new piece that was inspired by the day. We will share our writing, along with supportive discussion, after breakfast on Sunday. Local residents who would like to participate in the workshop and some meals only are also welcome.
