Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall Prose Room • 50 Wythe Ave., Chautauqua 14722

Description

Where does inspiration come from, and how do we seek it out? From the far corners of the globe, or just down the block? From transformational events in our lives, or the magic of our senses? And how can we translate that uplift, those insights, into essays and stories? In this prose workshop, for writers of all levels, we discuss the source of own inspirations, and set out — pen to page, or keystroke to screen — to compose images, narratives, and tales. Over the course of our week we’ll try our hand at generative writing, using images, the senses, memories, music, as take-offs for creative writing, either fiction or nonfiction, sharing with the group, for those who wish. We’ll also look closely at stories or essays participants offer for more focused critique, up to 8 pages, one per participant. Come prepared to enjoy a no-pressure, supportive, and, yes, inspiring writers circle, spurred on by that ancient wisdom, “mighty oaks from little acorns grow.” Stories, too.
