Free Writing Practice (Online) – Summer 2024

This writing experience offers attendees the opportunity to engage in a creative and communicative loop without judgment. We write from a variety of prompts designed to release the inner censor and simply get words on a page. After each timed session, writers read aloud their new work to participating attendees. This zen-like practice originated from Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones.

Leslie Dodd is a painter, poet, songwriter, and aspiring folk opera writer who has enthusiastically attended Free Writing Practice for many years. 

This class is suitable for all levels.

The Carnegie Center reserves the right to cancel a class if minimum enrollment is not met. It is best to register early to help our instructors prepare and to ensure the class does not get cancelled. We evaluate registration numbers 62 business days before a class starts to decide whether we can hold the class. Classes that do not meet minimum enrollment will be cancelled six–two business days prior to the first class meeting. All participants will be notified by email and will receive full refunds.
