Wild Women Writing Circle @ Caetani Cultural Centre

In this series with transformational memoir-writing instructor Janelle Hardy we’ll use a generative writing circle format with timed writing prompts to get ourselves into the writing habit, generate new stories as well as to share and listen deeply to one another.

This process is creative magic, connected, deep and playful. We'll write like wild women, swift, uncensored and unleashed. Limit to 6 participants per circle. $265.
