Writing Down the Bones: A Writing Workshop

Come and 'free the writer within' as the author Natalie Goldberg taught in her book by the same title. Learn the power of the unconscious when writing. Learn how to let go of your plans, how to trust spontaneous writing, and how to give yourself permission to think thoughts that come. Spend an evening with your pen and notebook, as well as fellow writers exploring the path of creative writing.

Instructor, Gail Hosking, is the author of the memoir Snake's Daughter: the Roads In and Out of War and the poetry chapbook The Tug. Her work has been anthologized several times. She holds an MFA from Bennington College and taught for many years at RIT. Her poems and essays have been published in such places as Lilith Magazine, Nimrod, The Chattahoochee Review, Tar River Poetry and The Fourth Genre. Two recent essays were considered "most notable" in Best American Essays 2014 and 2015.

This workshop is open to writers of all levels. Space is limited and registration is required.
