Life Writing – Summer 2020

Writing connects us more deeply to our own experience as part of the larger world. Writing is about going on. We can go on with our lives with greater clarity and calm because writing allows us to attend to our lives. During our weeks together we will generate new pieces of writing using prompts and excerpts from great memoirs to guide and inspire us. The focus will be both on writing for ourselves and on completing short segments of writing to share. Leatha Kendrick’s most recent book of poetry, And Luckier , has just been published by Accents Publishing. She is the author of five books of poetry and has enjoyed leading seminars at the Carnegie Center for eighteen years. For all levels.
