    Writing in a Sacred Space

    With Kristy Horine. Join fellow writers in a unique experience of writing in sacred spaces throughout Lexington. This series is designed to help writers learn more about the history of selected Lexington sacred spaces. We will experience first-hand the mystical and sacred that is filtered from the physical space, through the writer, and onto the page. Writers will have opportunity to polish and share their written work. Sacred spaces include the labyrinth at the Old Episcopal Burying Grounds, the Morlan Gallery at Transylvania University, Gratz Park, and more. [ALL LEVELS]

    FREE Writing Practice

    With Cole Bennett.This is an opportunity to write without rules, editing, or judgment -- the best way to start! Also the best way to limber up, or generate something new and energetic for working on later. We write from a simple prompt, followed by readings and “recalls”--other writers simply recalling your words back to you, without criticism or praise. Natalie Goldberg’s witty and insightful Writing Down The Bones is suggested reading, but not required. Writers of all stripes are welcome to join us at any time. * NO CLASS NOVEMBER 28*[ALL LEVELS]
