Description

Please join us for our Spring Series as we explore how writing helps us "let in the light" here at Women Writing for (a) Change, Jacksonville.

WHAT: Spring Series 2019
WHEN: February 6, 2019, 6:30-9:p.m. (arrive by 6)
LAST CLASS: April 24
WHERE: Riverside (1610 Osceola Street, 32204)
CLASS SIZE: Limited to 14 spaces (smaller size this semester).
FEE: $325 for the Series (non-refundable unless canceled two weeks before class).

In this series, we'll explore how writing, alone and with others, helps us shine the light on our inner life as well as our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual selves.

Our source texts will be Pat Schneider's two famous books: Writing Alone and With Others (in which she introduces her writing methods) and How the Light Gets In (in which she explores how writing can be a spiritual practice).

We will explore themes of inner light, spiritual practice, and writing in community. All forms of writing apply: memoir, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, essay, etc.

The Series meets weekly on Wednesday nights for 12 weeks, beginning February 6 and ending April 24. The semester culminates in our Public ReadAround on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

New writer? Remember, you don't have to be a professional writer to join in. Use this class to find out more about Women Writing for (a) Change's amazing process, used by thousands of women across the country to express their authentic selves through writing and community-building. We'll use prompts, poetry, and prose to practice many different writing techniques.

Experienced writers? You'll have a chance to sharpen your craft and technique in our small-group circles, so, bring whatever project you're working on and expect good feedback.

“A circle of women may be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, Dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get naked. Let them see you. Let them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love great. You will be changed. The very fabric of your Being will be altered by this. If you allow it. Please, allow it."
