Sunday, February 12, 10 am to 2:30 pm ET, online


10 am ET: Tune-up workshop. I’ll offer a 90-minute illustrated craft talk/discussion on writing with more flow and more power, close readings of published work, and idea-generating exercises. I may send a few short reading selections beforehand.

11:30 am ET: Deep-focus writing session. We’ll settle in for 90 minutes of timed writing blocks with optional prompts/portals provided. We will use the Pomodoro technique. Option for a short one-on-one meeting with me.

1:30 ET. Virtual salon and further discussion. Read aloud, listen, both! Readings will be brief, responses will spontaneous and supportive. Use this as a time to connect with like-minded souls.

There will be a lunch break from 1 to 1:30 pm ET. The salon will end by 2:30 ET.

It’s been a lot, these last few years. Let’s create with curiosity, find meaning and beauty on the page, and reconnect.
