This fun, art-filled experience, offered in partnership with Airbnb, enlightens and engages anyone who writes or wants to write, from beginners to professionals, in any format - prose, poetry, screenwriting. We’ll discuss elements of process and craft, such as:
- How to become fluent in your authentic storytelling voice
- How to improve your writing practice
- How to distract the ‘critical voice’ in your head so you can keep writing
WHAT WE’LL DO
Amid cutting-edge contemporary art, we’ll explore and write, guided by thematic writing exercises I’ve designed to elicit ‘aha’ experiences revealed by your unique response to current exhibits.
Later, we’ll gather in AMMO Cafe for refreshments and an opportunity to share work. I’ll moderate supportive group insight and offer guidance on how to expand what you’ve written, as well as innovative ways to maintain a consistent writing practice. You’ll leave with pages filled, and a fresh perspective on your writing, and yourself.
The theme is NOW - this tour is designed to ignite your imagination and inspire significant inner shifts in how you view yourself and your writing now. You’ll leave with pages filled and new ideas taking shape.
