In this workshop, we'll talk about writing for everyone. We'll give tips for writing when you don't feel inspired. Writer's Block is often perfectionism keeping us from expressing ourselves. Participants will be given prompts and exercises to generate writing and be inspired to write.

Our committee has curated four unique experiences for guests that are intended to nurture your mind, body, and spirit.
