Writing and Spirit w/ Philip Kenney

"We live and write from the paradox of effort and letting go. The courage to stand in that tension is as much a matter of spirit as it is skill. Good writing requires knowing when to work hard and when to pause, be still and listen to silence. This workshop will explore the challenges and opportunities inherent in stepping up and getting out of the way. Our meetings will be structured around a question and a poem. We will consider questions that clarify what is it that gets in the way. How does self-worth and emotional trauma disturb the silence? Can vulnerability become an asset in our work? In addition, each class will take its theme from a favorite poem and will include writing prompts designed to enhance the material. Readings will be suggested as needed."
