Start with a WORD!

Writing for fun and reflection, journal prompting and great conversation.

Want to start or continue your writing journey in a low pressure but fun environment? Join us over two evenings to learn some prompts to help get your creativity flowing as you begin your path to self journaling and writing.

In this two week workshop you will be provided with hints and help to start journaling, writing or recording your ideas and experiences. Feel free to share what you write or just listen. This is a no pressure environment where you can keep your writings to yourself. This workshop is for anyone wanting to put pen to paper, for enjoyment and reflection. This workshop is not about writing a book or long form documents, but budding authors are most welcome to attend.

No writing experience or talent necessary. 

Explore examples of short prompt writing, take part in fun writing exercises and meet some like minded people.
