Teachers-as-Writers: Finding Inspiration in the Everyday 2022-406/Online

Course #2022-406
Tuesdays Starting September 20 6:30 pm–8:30 pm running 6 weeks
Cost: $45 Instructor: brittny ray crowell

Please note that this is an online workshop conducted via Zoom. Participants will be provided information on how to join the online sessions.

Educators are always finding themselves thrust into a wave of expectations and demands at times it can be difficult to find a moment to process and reflect, let alone hone our creative abilities.

This workshop offers a space to build a supportive community via the process of transforming our daily reflections through the vehicle of several forms. Sessions will include reflective generative exercises which will serve as the basis for poetic works. Though our main objective will focus on generating work, time will also be allotted for workshop and exchange.
