Every Word Counts: A Writers' Workshop
Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
St. Scholastica Monastery
Writing helps us describe and interpret the world, our lives, and the intricacies of human relationships. This workshop offers a variety of interesting and playful ways to reinvigorate the words we choose to create a story, a poem, essay, or a section of a memoir. It builds on the principle that every word choice counts. In the workshop, every participant is a learner and a teacher as we deepen our understanding of writing as an art and as a discipline of the heart.
Facilitators: Ann Glumac, a trainer, consultant and poet, who has had fun playing with words most of her life. As a professional, Ann gets tremendous satisfaction from training – helping others build on their strengths and add new skills (including writing) so they can accomplish their goals.
Victor Klimoski, a writer, adult educator, and consultant whose poetry practice has evolved over the past 30 years as he explores the meanderings of his mind and heart. As a writer and adult educator, poetry gives him a fresh language to interpret his experience. Vic’s teaching lets him accompany other writers in that same work.
Cost is $75 per participant (lunch included). Beverages and light snacks will be available.
