Announcing Our 2020 Series

Accessing Compassion for

Fuller Writing


The theme for 2020 is compassion, specifically how to engage with compassion to access a new source of creativity or embody a character in a new way. While this is generative workshop, we see it as a playground. A place to try on something new, take in musings from a new community, and freshly launch into where you wish to go next.

This years facilitators, Hokis and Jessica, combine their teaching experiences and chosen genres into each month-long – self-faced workshop. Their backgrounds cover fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. The weekly writing prompts reflects commonalities of these forms, while the pre-writing and optional readings are genre-focused.
