Online Seminar: Finding Your Muse
Summary:This workshop will engage writers with meditation practices, the development of a sixth sense, games of chance and questions of coincidence, prompting inspiration through experimental writing techniques that go beyond everyday writing practices. We’ll take the reins off the horse, so to speak, and ride bareback into the sunset, allowing the horse to lead the way to the horizon.
