ASHFORD ARTS COUNCIL PRESENTS!
A WRITING STROLL: June 9, 10 am to 2 pm
Rain date: June 10, 10 am to 2 pm
Explore your inner creativity by participating in this low-stress but invigorating writing activity. We will meet at Storrs Center to start. Then with a small group, we will move around to various places in the area, Storrs and/or the University, taking the opportunity to write in each place. The area provides inspiration in a variety of ways–through its rich history and architecture, its museums, activities in the various retail establishments, its beautiful natural setting and more. Your writing also will be inspired by the mutual sharing of the work of your colleagues. This method of encouraging creativity through writing draws on the work of Natalie Goldberg and was refined and developed by Richard Louth, Director of the Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project. No previous writing experience or drafts required–just bring something to write with and something to write on.
This fun activity will be led by Marian Matthews, Ashford resident, previous professor of education and Director of the High Plains Writing Project in New Mexico and the Central Connecticut Writing Project, now retired. She has over 20 years of experience in helping novice and experienced writers find their voices. Come find yours.
