I'm taking a writing class & I'm very excited!!!!

It's at a local place called the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.  It used to be called the Hand Workshop.  I took a pottery class there about 20 years ago and loved it.  By the way, they present a top-notch craft show each year in November.  These are talented artisans.  The show never disappoints.

Anyhow here is the class I'm taking.  It is so appropriate for me right now.

The Creative Spark

All Levels
Clarissa Pinkola Estes writes about el duende–“the goblin wind” within us which can breathe our creative spark into creative fire. The ember may be a poem, a story, a confession, a play. It may not even know what it is, or wants to be–but it’s there. So we’ll experiment. The goal of this creative writing class is to fan your ideas and inspirations into flame. We’ll use timed writing, dream journals, guided imagery, Active Imagination, and anything else we can think of to get in touch with the stories you want or need to tell–and those needing or wanting you to tell them. Come with an open mind. Be honest and brave. You will come away from this class not only a better writer, but also a clearer thinker.

  1. Pinkola?

    That's the woman's middle name? Pinkola?

    LOL, I dunno, sounds like it could be some relative of mine, Carmine "Little Pinky" Pinkola.

    I'm just saying...
