RISE AND FALL: Writing Waters with Catherine Young


Each of us has a connection with water beginning with the arteries in our hands. Many of us have a treasured place beside a lake, waterfall, or stream we return to in heart and memory. In this two-hour workshop, we will explore waters and our deep connections to them. Using writing prompts and exercises, we will discover the stories in each of us to generate and craft prose and poetry. Open to all levels of writers.
