WORKSHOP: Water as a Collaborator: How Waterways Support Our Writing – A workshop with writer, artist, and publisher Whitney French

Saturday, November 25, 1 p.m. - 2 p.m.

📍 Virtual via Zoom
👥 Open to WritersNL Members only. Pre-registration required.

Join us for a creative writing workshop that is open to all disciplines of writers compelled by water.

Led by writer and arts educator Whitney French, this session invites us to connect with our bodies & use water as a collaborator for our writing practice. Drawing from sounds, memories, and literary works from other notable writers, we will have an opportunity to generate new work and share with a small group. Water as Collaborator is a workshop for those excited to reflect on the power, messages, and histories that water contains.

All writers of all levels are welcome!
