“Flow” is one of those words that teachers and writers use to describe a very nebulous state. Does flow happen when the reader is transported into the mind of the writer? Does it happen when the writer has lost track of time and the pen seems to move beyond their conscious control, with words “spilling” out onto the page? In this workshop we will bring together texts from neuroscience and poetics in order to deepen your innate understanding of this optimal state in which time slips, words fly, and the body relaxes into a more mindful nervous system where writing falls holistically into forms, and healing just might integrate into creativity.
Open to the Public – $20 suggested donation
