The Crazy Child One-Day Workshops
We are close to our creative source when the child within speaks its mind and ignores any critical or editorial voices. In the morning we will let that “Crazy Child” write. And when the exercise is shared, the workshop as a whole will likely point to several sentences and say, “Those images are striking!” or “That scene is full of power!” These are clues for the afternoon’s exercise, or we may follow our inner sense of the story and let the Child write freely again. Technically, this is proprioceptive writing – dealing with the stories and images contained in our nervous systems – and it gives texture and flair to all kinds of writing.
We are usually surprised by how much writing we do in these workshops, and by its competence. Three participants, for example, submitted their stories to a recent anthology; all three were accepted, one won third prize and another won first prize.
For beginners, for developing writers and for professionals who want to expand their horizons.
