Penning This Place: Writing Whistler’s Literary Landscape Workshop
November 3, 2018 | 10am-4pm | Maury Young Arts Centre, Whistler
Participants will engage in a variety of writing exercises which will creatively explore different ways of relating to and writing our relationships to place…this unique place. Open to and incorporating a wide variety of styles, this workshop will poetically probe, and strive to evocatively pen our experiences in a collaborative, supportive and fun environment. We will work site-specifically and engage in a range of activities from solo to small group creations. Led by published author Bronwyn Preece, who is also an accomplished professional improvisation and mindfulness coach, this unique workshop is open to all levels of experience.
The class will use the surrounding area, inside and outside, to inspire you to write. Please bring a note book, pen, pencil, and lunch. Don’t forget to dress for the weather!
