Summer is a time for playful learning! It's also a time to specialize: we'll dive into one of the most (literally) enchanting elements of poetry: sound. This is a modular series with three live and two Zoom sessions...
Move your body, find your words,
explore creativity in community!
This summer, dive into an enchanting element of poetry: sound! Experience ancient traditions and modern techniques as we play with:
This workshop is a modular series with three live half-day intensives, and two Zoom sessions in between to keep us connected.
Come away with new poems, opportunities for collaboration, and a deeper understanding of sound and rhythm in poetry.
A summer session allows us the luxury of time for exploration. As usual, we'll start with Deb's Moved to Write® process: physical warm-ups to activate internal and external creative muscles. These activities help us cultivate flow and find ways around resistance.
Then we'll listen, read, question, discuss, brainstorm and write. Our writing atmosphere encourages deep listening to the model poems as well as each other's ideas. We'll reflect, experiment and collaborate. And when it's time to share, we're a thoughtful community who responds with positive feedback.

You were born to create! But sometimes creativity ends up taking a backseat to “real life.” Organic Writing is a workshop series for women of all ages who are ready to step into a creative practice using Deb's innovative Moved to Write® process.
Moved to Write workshops and classes begin with physical warm-ups to activate our internal and external creative muscles. Gentle movement, breath-work and imagery inspire new thoughts and inform the discussion. We then motivate the poem with questions, wordplay, self-awareness activities, and plenty of time for writing and sharing.
In this monthly writing class you’ll align with the unlimited source of your own ideas. Our warm and supportive community meets to read and write poetry, and to listen deeply to one another.
If you’re ready to write, come join us (online these days!) Bring a notebook, a favorite pen, your water bottle, and whatever’s on your mind.
Once a month on Sundays from 10:00-12:15 - ONLINE via ZOOM
Summer 2021 dates: July 11 |August 8 |September 12
