May New Moon Writing Circle
Virtual Class (Zoom). Friday, May 22. 5 pm
We are living in a strange, surreal, and challenging time. In the midst of change and grief, we are being called to slow down, to tune into ourselves and others. We are being asked to reconnect with the core of who we are and honor our most essential needs.
May's new moon is particularly helpful for new beginnings.
Let's nurture ourselves and others. Let's breathe and dwell in stillness and possibility together as we write down intentions for an as yet unknown future. With the energy of this New Moon, we'll use ritual and writing prompts to plant seeds of possibility.
This class will be held online on Zoom. Bring something to write with and on, your imaginations, your open hearts and curious minds.
Writing circle will be held on Zoom and will be capped at 12 participants so reserve your spot soon.
About Lisa: I am a writer, writing teacher, and creativity usher doing my best everyday to move through the world with authenticity and compassion. A native New Orleanian and current desert dweller, I received my MFA in creative nonfiction writing from the University of Arizona. For over a decade, I have taught writing in the Tucson community, including community workshops, courses at the U of A and Pima Community College, and at detention and the state prison with incarcerated adults and youth. I also work individually with writers a Creative Usher, helping them locate their stories and craft them on the page. I believe that everyone has stories inside them that they need to tell and that the world needs to hear. I believe in the power of writing to heal, enhance understanding of self and others, and add beauty and grace to the world. I am the founder, host, and producer of The Matriarchitects podcast which features change-makers building a culture that respects, values, and celebrates women. My essays and articles have been published in Diagram, defunct, drunken boat, Edible Baja Arizona, GOOD, Good Housekeeping, B_tch, Bustle, Salon, The Feminist Wire, Talk Poverty, Terrain dot org, and The Washington Post.
