Writing through Covid

Sping 2021

Will it ever be over? I think of myself as a positive person, and my life is very little affected by the world outside, since I work from home and my office window looks out over the birds building their nests and their spring hopes. And yet, there is still that noise in the back of my heart. I am ready like so many others to move on. My covid shot is booked and I am feeling impatient.  

We planted seeds this weekend, the sun is warm, and it helps. Hiking in the spring woods is also amazing but the thing that keeps me going the most…is writing.  It’s not surprising that I have an urge to put pen to paper. It is something I have been doing in times of joy and strife since I could hold a pen. In so many ways, it is my meditation.

And I would like to invite you to write with me.

FLY AWAY WRITING – inspired by the writing of imprisoned writer and activist, Ahmet Altan who said, “…like all writers, I have magic. I can pass through your walls with ease.” This session will help us pass through the walls of our life circumstances with prompted writing and feedback in a supportive space. This group is suitable for beginning writers and experienced alike. Your relationship with words will never be the same.  Every writer will come away with at least 3 story beginnings per week.
