This eight-week class offers the opportunity to come together to write from prompts, share with others and connect. This can be challenging for people who agonize over their writing or speaking for that matter. Similar to improv theatre, we discover that sometimes great stuff happens, sometimes not, but just like life, it’s okay. Responding in the moment with unrehearsed, unedited, and uncensored writing allows a connection with ourselves and with others that doesn’t often happen in life. The group is for people who like to write, hate to write, or anywhere in between but who would like to feel freer with what they do write, and say. General Public/Members: $96/$80 Eight Sessions
