One-Day Workshop, October 10, 2015
“You can’t deny laughter, when it comes it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.” Pablo Neruda
Let’s write about it. Using laughter and various writing prompts, we will write a poem or two or a short prose piece. This is a chance to laugh and write. Additionally, bring one or more poems you like (except the form haiku), and some of your own work, and we will create something new from it. (Bring copies of poems for yourself only) This is an opportunity for experienced or novice writers.
Change is inevitable. Studies have shown that writing can relive stress, increase brain activity, create new neural connections enhance memory, and promote overall wellbeing. Writing, especially writing poetry, may help us manage better with changes or see things more clearly.
Could we erase some words and joyously leave something behind, as we head to the future? This workshop is an opportunity to find a continued (or new) path of joy, laughter, self-expression, and relaxion by writing what you may choose to share or shred.
