A generative writing workshop that enlivens body and brain for writers of prose or poetry. Come explore prompts that activate the senses and invite more rhythm, surprise, and specificity to your writing. Writers of diverse practices welcome: different genres have much to gain from each other in this practice. Wear walking shoes and comfortable attire. “Until I took Peggy Dobreer’s workshop I never knew movement could open such rich avenues of play and invention in my writing process. Dobreer’s approach is magical.”
-Janet Fitch, White Oleander, Paint it Black, The Revolution of Marina M.
