Body, Story, Write – Wednesday class series
Our bodies are like an orchestra, constantly tuning for each day we are alive. When we listen deeply to our body, we are honoring and listening to the body’s language. Our bodies speak to us; they hold our stories, our secrets, and our memories. Every story you want to write is already alive in your cells. And the body wants you to tell your stories, which are entwined in your hips, your knees, your teeth and your sternum. Your stories live in your heart and your lungs.
Writing through the body and about the body puts us in touch with something bigger than language – our own mortality. When we face that, our creativity becomes a rushing river.
Author Snowden says “this is a time to say yes to the grammar of the gut.”
In this 6-week course, I am inviting writers to tap into their body to create their deepest stories, while also learning literary and poetic techniques. Your body is a personal navigation system, an antique map, a GPS to the stories that want to find their way into your books, Â essays or blogs.
We will explore utilizing questions, odes, metaphor, dialogue and place by exploring technique a series of pre-writing exercises, while creating content in small writing segments – content that can be used in our books, essays and blogs.
Join eight to ten writers in a 6-weekly weekly class that meets every Wednesday evening
Note: This is a Kauai based hybrid class with a few students from the west coast attending, but it takes place in my living room, mask free. My living is spacious, and it’s easy to keep your distance. We are responsible (we don’t show up sick), some of us are vaccinated, some not vaccinated. Some students choose to come in online, and some choose to come live. Some students live on Kauai and some call in. It’ my hybrid, live optional class, easily adaptable for changing times.
