Workshop - Embracing the Practice with Author Holiday Reinhorn


Developing, Designing, Reinventing, and Revitalizing Your Daily Writing Process
June 12th 3:30pm at Kress Pavilion, Egg Harbor

“Planning to write is not writing.  Outlining and talking about writing is not writing.  Writing is writing.”  – E.L. Doctorow 

Writers of any level of experience or commitment are invited to join Fiction Writer Holiday Reinhorn for a full-immersion afternoon of spontaneous creativity and an unconventional investigation of the writing process.  Participants will spend our time together on a magical mystery tour of their own imaginations, generating more fresh material than they had hoped possible and gathering a host of useful resources and tools to aid in creating and sustaining a vibrant writing practice beyond the class.  If you are seeking to reconnect with your muse or are simply interested in being introduced:  Here’s your chance!   An empty notebook and a hope to more deeply access your creativity and writing goals are all that is required.

THIS WORKSHOP IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC
