A Creative Writing Workshop by Edwin Torres
4 Saturday mornings in April
April 6 / 13 / 20 / 27
Poets are creatures of awareness, receptive beings that embody transition. Part of allowing the creative process its chance to amaze us, is to encourage that trigger into amazement. To align our natural tri-lingual voice, our voice, with the humanity that defines us.
Using performance, movement and sensory exercises, this workshop will be structured as a creative laboratory that will explore how we communicate by exercising the languages inside us — to find where the senses can meet each other, where the creative process can begin.
In four classes over four weeks, work will be created, discarded, renewed. This will be an active writing workshop, internal/external movement required. Look forward to seeing you there!
$100 Pre-Register for 4 Sessions / $35 Dollars Per Workshop
