Fee: $25 for the two workshops. Enrollment limited to 10 attendees.
Banish your inner critic! Embrace your innate ability to write stories! Unleash the hounds of memory! The Writer’s Spark is a writing workshop for those of us who identify as writers and those of us who don’t. In these two 4-hour sessions inspired by the teachings of Lynda Barry, we concentrate on reconnecting to that place in our past where we just made things without asking the question: “Is this any good?” Freeing ourselves from that critical voice allows our stories to reveal themselves in unexpected ways. We will write, draw, color, and more. Anything can happen!
The Writer’s Spark is offered in collaboration with the Center for the Arts. It is funded by gifts in memory of Eli Daniel Nemetz Todd, a writer born and raised in Northampton, who died in October 2016 at the age of 23. We are pleased to honor his legacy by creating affordable opportunities for members of the community to engage in a diverse series of writing experiences with dedicated and talented instructors.
