Developing a Writing Habit
Showing up to write isn’t half the battle – it is the battle. This class will help you develop writing habits that will boost your confidence, help you find your "voice," and keep your writing process in motion. We’ll investigate ways to playfully expand the imagination and increase creative output as well as work with prompts that will help inspire specific writing projects, and most importantly generate new work. Participants will leave with a tool kit to keep the writing flowing.
Instructor: Darlene Montonaro is the former Executive Director of the Poets and Writers League / The Lit and a writing teacher with over 30 years of experience. She is also a poet whose work has appeared in a variety of literary magazines including Calyx, Slipstream, Visions International, dPoetry Motel, Abraxas, and The Buddhist Poetry Review. Four of her poems were also anthologized in the book Illness & Grace: Terror & Transformation, published by Wising Up Press.
