Sunday Afternoon Writing Circles (weekly writing circle in Victoria)
The afternoon is about sharing from our hearts, it’s laughter, it’s friendship. It’s learning to stop judging our work, it’s sipping tea. It’s finding our voice and feeling safe to speak our words out loud. It’s about being authentic and kind. It’s about music and moving our bodies during the break. It’s about creativity and it’s about catharsis, allowing the writing to become our wise teacher. It’s poetry and it’s prose. It is short stories and drawings that we write from. In short, it’s a love fest, both on and off the page! Full details here. Note: You must RSVP. Thank you!
Junie, these afternoons have renewed my creative spirit and I love the camaraderie of the participants. Thank you! —Eve Sanders
