In this two-part Tuesday class we will play with guided imagery as a source for generative writing. Meditative techniques rich in visuals and lyricism will grant us access to the liminal imagination and body. From there we can discover ideas, images, and corporeal insights that feed our writing prompts. In this course you will learn methods for nourishing your practice from the renewable resource of your own body—so that you aren’t relying on your mind alone to do all the heavy lifting of your writing. This is a place to be experimental, curious, creative, and open to new ways of developing your senses of embodiment.

Bring a journal and pen/pencil.

Wear comfortable clothes.

Please do not wear scents or fragrances.
